Original title: Isdraken
Director: Martin Högdahl
Sweden / 2012/ 77 min. In Swedish with English subtitles
Eleven-year-old Mik is learning as much as he can about whales, and loves rock music. He lives with his older brother Tony and unemployed alcoholic dad in the suburbs of Stockholm. One day, things take a turn for the worse and Mik is forced by the youth welfare office to go and live with his aunt Lena in a remote village in the north of Sweden. His world collapses, until he befriends brothers Bengt and Bertil, falls in love with the fearless and assertive Pi, helps his friends build a snowmobile, and eventually finds his way home.
