The Unpredictability of Being Human
This is a story for the outsider in every one of us. If 14-year-old Malin was God for a day, she wouldn't change much. Dad would still yell; her brother Sigve would stillget in trouble, and Mom would still think wine is good for the heart. She'd still be friends with Hanna, even if they met shoplifting. Because stuff's okay, mostly. And if He could fix the world, wouldn't God have done it already? Darkly comic, striking and compassionate, this is a portrait of small-town Norway, a community that sings with pain, humour, and a whole lot of nothingness, told through the eyes of a unique teenage girl.
