Mirjam's life seems perfect – she's a disco dance champion and the darling of the evangelical church led by her stepfather. When she collapses during a performance, the only acceptable explanation is that her faith is not strong enough. She therefore decides to look for a more radical solution. This captivating film proves how easy it is to lose oneself, and represents the first film role for the star of the Norwegian Skam series, Josefine Frida.
