A drama-comedy about Max, a successful New York-based commercial cinematographer, who is disillusioned and alone. He has a very low opinion of love, romance and emotions. One day Max is contacted by his old childhood friend Peter, who invites him to come to a small Swedish city Hudiksvall and help him make a film about his daughter's friends.
Max (Per Morberg) is a successful New York-based advertisement photographer, but betrayal from his parents and girlfriend has made him bitter, mean and lonely. Just as hes about to commit suicide his phone rings. It is Peter (Claes Malmberg), Maxs old childhood friend whom he hasnt spoken to in over 30 years. He wants Max to come to Sweden and help him film a YouTube-video of his daughters intellectually disabled friends.

It was filmed in Hudiksvall and in New York during the fall of 2012.
This movie received mostly negative reviews. The Goteborgs-Posten said the "cheesy background story that includes Per Morberg, Vanja Rosenberg and Claes Malmberg" was "on the verge of a total failure". The Svenska Dagbladet said the structure of the movie "resembles a square Swedish 1940s movie".
