The Rules for Everything

The Rules for Everything

Synopsis

Director

Storm (10) tries to figure out how everything is connected – from the serendipitous nature of atoms, to the complexity of human life. But her world spins out of control when her father and his mistress are killed suddenly in a traffic accident. While her mother fills her emptiness with a self-help guru, Storm makes her own set of rules, that allows her to come to terms with her father’s death.

„There are so many extreme things about life and death which are not acknowledged in our daily lives. It’s funny and strange“, says director Kim Hiorthøy about his first feature film. This emotionally challenging story about human fear and shortcomings becomes lighthearted through Hiorthøy´s playful use of visual expression and storytelling.
