Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
The story is drawn directly from the files of the Stockholm police, and, from three distinct viewpoints, chronicles the racially-motivated and brutal murder of a young immigrant boy. The events leading up to the terrible crime are photographed in color, while the police investigation is filmed with a yellow tint. The murder itself is filmed in gloomy black and white with a shaky hand-held camera. Working with a low budget, filmmaker David Flamholc used only non-professional actors.
