Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
This sensitive Swedish film follows a young boy on his rocky road to manhood. Sixten, a young teen, lives with his lonely father. Since they divorced, he seldom sees his mother who moved to Copenhagen. Because his father is lonely, and also over-protective of Sixten, the boy decides to find his father a wife. Using his dad's name, Sixten begins answering ads from the lonely hearts section. As he begins meeting some of the women he writes, he finds his own sexuality blossoms and culminates in a summer romance with a female schoolmate.
