Mariana and Samuel move to an idyllic mountain neighborhood to raise their kids more authentically and away from their own traumatic childhoods. However, when a tragedy strikes the community, their certainties begin to falter, bringing them dangerously close to everything they were trying to escape.


Note from the artistic direction

Through Marina and Samuel’s hectic journey as young parents who have just left the city to enjoy the benefits of nature, This is not Sweden, a bittersweet comedy from Cataluña, makes us reflect on what qualifies as a “good parent”. A perfect balance between cringe humor and emotions.
