DET VITA FOLKET / White People

DET VITA FOLKET / White People

Alex is seized on the street outside the grocery store and taken to an underground prison where people are locked up to await deportation. Viktoria is the director of the facility, and she rules with an iron fist. From the moment Alex arrives, she is determined to escape, no matter the cost. A topical film about power and hierarchy. Will you eat or be eaten?
