Described by Variety as “a compelling humanist drama about a Filipino mail-order bride in a small Danish fishing village,”the movie centers on Rosita, who arrives in Denmark on a tourist visa, and moves in with Ulrik, who tests whether she is suitable as a wife.

According to local reports, Mercedes said:

“This film is really different from what I’ve done before. It’s very simple but it has an element of reality, which people can really relate to.

Emotionally it’s really heavy.”
