Monica Zetterlund, a young, rebellious small town girl is determined to make it as a singer in the vibrant jazz clubs of Stockholm, and even New York City, in the sixties. Beautiful and sensual, she embarks on the singing career of her dreams, and an exquisite singer and actress evolves in the golden era of jazz. But beneath all the glamour, Monica struggles to face the dark side of fame and success. As late nights of working and partying keep playing a bigger part in her life, the walls around her begin to shake. With a string of broken love affairs, a father she can never please, and a daughter to whom she’ll never be the perfect mother, Monica finds herself feeling more lost than ever. And when morning breaks, she’s alone, with a cocktail in her hand. Is this a road with no turning back?



Born in Denmark in 1960, Per Fly made his feature film debut in 2000 with THE BENCH, the first part of a trilogy about the Danish class system. The film received a Bodil Award and a Robert Award for Best Director. The sequel, THE INHERITANCE (2003), was a commercial hit and earned best screenplay at the San Sebastian Festival. The final film in the trilogy was MANSLAUGHTER (2005), and Fly received the Crown Prince and Crown Princess’ Culture Prize for the three works. He followed them in 2010 with THE WOMAN WHO DREAMED OF A MAN.
