The plot centers on Thomas and Ane, a married couple undergoing a divorce but keeping it secret from their children. Their plans are upended when Ane suffers a debilitating stroke, prompting them to reevaluate their relationship and face the challenges of their altered future together.

Nordahl recently directed multiple episodes of the series ‘Drømmeren,’ which depicts an author’s journey from adversity to literary acclaim after returning to Denmark from East Africa.

Additionally, she played the titular character in ‘Erna at War,’ depicting a woman who disguises herself as a man to protect her son during World War I.

Dencik took on the role of Lars Norén in the miniseries ‘Smärtpunkten,’ in which the playwright’s controversial play ‘7:3’ blurs the line between reality and fiction, sparking debates on rehabilitation and safety. In ‘Huset,’ he portrays Henry, one of four prison officers facing upheaval as they strive to keep their jobs while navigating the complex dynamics of prison life.
