An open-hearted portrait of Sweden’s biggest female artist, Laleh, who was born in Iran where her parents lived underground, before they went into exile and ended up in Hammarkullen, a suburb of Gothenburg. Following her through rehearsals and concerts Laleh talks candidly about life and death. About her music and career. About being female in a male-dominated profession. About coming to Sweden as a refugee child. About her parents’ lives and deaths. And about the gift she received from them and the responsibility to manage it. Her life and her freedom.
The film is presented in collaboration with CPH:DOX.
