Keeping Silence


Nils and Ari love each other, but Nils is unable to show Ari his feelings. She breaks up with him. Once again, another one of his relationships is short-lived, although Nils had hoped that everything would be different with Ari…
Nils is not able to speak about his past, about the incidents he experienced as a boy, about his stepfather and the things he did to him.
To get away from it all, he spends the summer in Sweden. There, Nils meets Svante and she shows him how he can leave his past behind and start a new life.
