Wallrider

Set in a futuristic universe on a mysterious planet, separated into five districts, speed skaters are running against each other on the walls of a giant tower that reaches far into space. Status, honor, and territory are on the line – and the one to first reach to the top is the winner.

The legendary skater Raidon is the blue districts chosen hero through many years. He is deeply conservative, loyal and proud of being blue. But this year everything changes for Raidon when he discovers a new rival, Hepwi from the red district, the blue district’s bitter enemy. She is young, smart and skates fast and playful. In the middle of the final run, Raidon’s solidarity is put to the test when he is faced with a life or death dilemma.

Dog-Eat-Dog

Silje leaves her boyfriend, Thomas, but returns to the apartment when she realizes that she forgot her phone. Inside the apartment she finds Thomas hanging from the chandelier with a rope around his neck. At the hospital, it becomes clear that he misunderstood, and thought that Silje came back of remorse, not because of her phone. Out of consideration, she accepts his version. Together they had planned a trip to the family cabin the following day, with Thomas’ brother and his girlfriend. As Thomas lies to them about how he hurt himself, they can’t find a reason to cancel the trip. Stuck on an island, away from civilization, uncomfortable situations develop between the four characters.
