    Before the Storm

    Före stormen, 2000

     

    This is a story of a disturbed normal life. In other words, it is a story that fear transforms the lives of the characters almost to destroy them. Ali is a man who comes from the Middle East. Lives in Sweden, is a taxi driver and has two daughters. Leo is an unassuming boy classmate of one of his daughters. Both will live in parallel a descent into hell when fear is installed in their lives and consumes them from within. In the case of Ali, through a message that sends memories to a distant past as a terrorist he thought he had finally escaped; in the case of Leo, when a series of unfortunate coincidences lead him to shoot another boy who constantly torments him. Both characters have to face their fears or succumb to it.
