Photographer Mika (Metelius) and musician Tesfay (Ahmed Berhan) meet and become each other’s first loves. After the heady days of new romance – partying, infatuation and sex – they decide to live together, but this next phase of their relationship is fraught with difficulties. Daringly candid, both in its conception and its fearless performances, The Heart is a refreshing take on the joys and perils of modern love.
Festival guest: Fanni Metelius is a director, screenwriter and actor who appeared in Ruben Östlund’s Force Majeure. The Heart, in which she also stars, is her debut feature.
