This is a film about an old man living alone on a small island on the Swedish west coast and his struggle against the sea and storms. The cast includes more than 100 friends, artists and musicians.

Warning! The film contains explicit language, nudity and some disturbing violence. The old man himself will appear naked in a dramatic garden scene.

Swan 2.0 

The famous ballet ” The Swan” performed by Anna Pavlova in 1905 is based on Lord Tennyson's poem "The Dying Swan”. The original concept of the piece is that the Swan has been wounded and is painfully fighting against death, but in the end, she loses her battle and dies. But the ballet is not about a swan, it is about death and the swan is simply a metaphor. According to legend, when Anna Pavlova was lying on her deathbed, her last words were, "Get my Swan costume ready. Our Swan however is not at all interested in dying. She is young, strong and dedicated to controlling her life and her future. At any cost.
