She leads a picture-perfect life: Anita and her husband, a successful lawyer, have moved into a minimalistically decorated modern villa. But when Anita starts her new job as a PE teacher, this perfection is disrupted. While jogging, she imagines she’s being observed; her pupil Markus makes suggestive remarks. Anita does what she never should have, reciprocating the 16-year-old's advances. Her attraction to the boy increases, and soon she will risk everything for him. Following “I'm the One You Want” (NFL 2014), Andrea Bræin Hovig is impressive in the role of the teacher whose relationship with a pupil leads to catastrophe. Director Dahlsbakken stages the familiar motif of love against generational borders in a topical setting, among high performers who condemn any lack of professionalism.
