Danish director Barbara Rothenborg has commenced production on her third feature film titled One-Two-Three-Go!. The film is adapted from Jesper Wung-Sung’s novel of the same name, and the film is currently being shot on the Danish island of Funen.

The film stars Nikolaj Groth, and is the story of Jeppe and Cicilie (played by Clara Rosager), two teenagers who are in love. Cecilie has cancer, so together they decide to make the most out of her short life. They go to Gran Canaria to enjoy their last summer together, where Cicilie gets a tattoo, they get ‘married’ and they experience their first time.

Rothernborg has previous worked on family comedies Love at First Hiccup (2009) and Crumbs: All at Stake (2014). She has also been the conceptual director on Sjit Happens and made six episodes of My 50/50 Life.
