Cry Wolf

by Maja Jul Larsen Series

In competition

In a school essay, 14-year-old Holly accuses her stepfather of domestic violence. The alarm bells immediately go off among the teachers and the good-natured social worker Lars takes on the case. He doesn’t doubt the young teenager’s testimony for a second, and takes her and her little brother to a foster family. Holly’s mother and the accused himself, however, pass off the serious accusations as fantasies. Has Holly been the victim of domestic violence? Or is she a malicious liar rebelling in an extreme form against her parental home? CRY WOLF catapults us mercilessly between the emotional fronts of a precarious family situation. ZFF shows the first two episodes of this Danish drama series.
