Sara Johnsen's well-crafted, multi award-winning Kissed by Winter is a thoughtful, moving, and strangely unpredictable drama about loss and grief, featuring a pair of excellent performances from Annika Hallin and Kristoffer Joner.


"Following a tragic accident, Victoria leaves the man she loves in Stockholm. She takes up a position as a county doctor in a remote village in the mountains of Norway. One day, the body of a young man is found in the snow by the road and turns out to be an Iraqi boy from a nearby refugee center. Through her encounter with the dead boy in the snow and the local inhabitants, Victoria becomes trapped in a fateful labyrinth, believing that by clarifying the circumstances surrounding his death, she can provide closure for all."
