Very soon now, possibly as soon as tomorrow night, BLÅ and BEKELE will finally arrive to Malmö!
BEKELE will be available in one Swedish and one English version, so I’m doing this presentation in English:
Bekele is married to Johannes in Malmö, Sweden. They have to go to regular interviews at the Migration Board to prove that their marriage is real.
But what will they do when their lives are suddenly turned upside down? When something happens that puts more on the line than just their relationship?
This is the story of Bekele, Johannes and Simon, but also about the Sweden of today…
