The Swedish entry for the upcoming Oscars is a completely unique, at times ghastly but most of all uplifting viewing experience. A female customs officer, who is considered to be anything but physically attractive, is extremely good at her job because of her sense of smell. One day, she meets a man with the same physical attributes. She learns the truth about her background and why she has never felt at home. The less you know about the plot, the better, but be prepared for a genre-crossing story that is deeply rooted in Scandinavian folkore.
