Lakki (1992)




Surreal tale of a 14 year-old boy who dreams of escaping the loneliness from an unhappy home & sexual abuse (from his mother''s boyfriend who is also his school swimming coach). One day his back mysteriously sprouts feathers and he can metaphorically fly away from it all.


A bittersweet story of a teenage boy who dreams of escaping from sexual abuse and an unhappy family life, and who mysteriously grows wings to fly away from it all. Nudity and mature themes. This is the only Anders Borchgrevink video.
