Psychosis in Stockholm - in post production

Psychosis in Stockholm is a surreal drama, set in Sweden and in space.
It is based on five life-changing days when I was 14 years old and my mum suddenly developed a psychosis on our trip to Stockholm. After two hectic days, my mum was admitted to the psychiatric ward against her will. But everybody at the hospital forgot to ask about me. So I lied myself into the hotel again and decided to continue the vacation on my own.
I truly felt like if I was part of a film.
Now, 20 years later, I want to make that film.
