Some parents wait their whole life to hear the kids say “Thank you”. And some children wait just as doggedly to hear “Sorry”. This unsolvable equation serves as the starting point of this Swedish crazy comedy about mothers and daughters. Circumstances force thirty-five-year-old Niki, whose behaviour shows that maturity is not just about age, to reconsider all her relationships and life decisions. A positive film, whose mere name suggests what to do when life gets hard.

Lisa Aschan

After her studies, she grabbed attention with fictitious ads for spiky “Fuck the Rapist!” tampons. She made a TV series about a girl who pretends to be a leopard. Her feature debut She Monkeys about the rivalry between girls in a riding school won awards at festivals worldwide as well as at home for the Best Swedish Film.
