“Northern lights in the morning. Then it will be a magical day.”
Seven-year-old Siv’s first night sleeping over at her new friend Cerisia’s place turns out to be a magical one. In the early evening, many things are already beginning to seem odd, the exotic food, all of the animals ... At night though, the unfamiliar flat really starts to become a realm full of secrets. There is spooky and puzzling stuff waiting to be discovered behind every door. The little girl’s worries and desires are mirrored in the purple adventure and they help her at the same time to gain her own perspective on things. The dream-like scenery resembles that of Lewis Carroll. The film’s love for the unconventional also recalls the work of Astrid Lindgren, with whom filmmaker and author Catti Edfeldt collaborated frequently in the early days of her career.
