Schedule and Location
Locations will be in Kiruna, Sweden and surrounding mountains. Shooting the 17th to 23th of June 2012. Edited by the 12th of July 2012.
An old car parks by the root of a small mountain and an old man connected to an oxygen tube sits inside. He holds a picture of a young man and woman sitting on a mountain peak. He starts walking up the mountain. Along the path he leaves the oxygen tube, his breath gets even heavier and he starts getting flashbacks of his life with the woman on the picture. The flashbacks are funny, sad, happy and tragic memories from when they met as children until she dies while giving birth to their child. At that time the old man is just a stone throw from the peak of the mountain but gets a heart attack. Struggling to open his eyes he hold up the photograph, he’s lying on the same spot the picture was taken from. As he takes his last breath his hands falls but the woman on the picture is still sitting there and she looks back at him. The old man walks up and sits next to his wife as the sun sets.
