Special Screenings

Blodsbond / Marius Holst

Mirush leaves Kosovo for Norway, hoping to find his father who abandoned the family when Mirush was very young. Now the father runs a restaurant in Oslo, but he is also in deep debt to the Albanian Mafia. The father has started a new life with his Norwegian girlfriend, while his Albanian family is only a vague memory. That is, until he starts to work in his father’s restaurant without letting him know that he is his son. Gradually, they get to know each other, but what Mirush discovers about his father is not something he is prepared to take. He is forced to make choices that have important consequences, for both of them.
