A touching comedy drama addressing such issues as lost love and the pangs of regret, directors Måns Herngren and Hannes Holm's Klassfesten (released stateside as The Reunion) tells the tale of a high school reunion while observing and contrasting one's ever-changing values. As a teenager, Magnus (Björn Kjellman) nearly ran away with his first true love, Hillevi (Inday Ba). Twenty years later, he remains content with his place in the world despite his controlling wife and tedious job. When he receives notice that his high-school reunion is fast approaching, Magnus' 16-year-old son convinces him to attend the reunion on the off chance that he and Hillevi's old romance will trigger the youthful joy that seems so far removed from Magnus' life. Soon realizing that there is more to life than simple contentment, Magnus decides to take his life in a new direction.
