IMDB

Told from the perspective of Sofia (Thea Green Lundberg), a queer woman discovering and asserting who she is as a young adult, THE WAY THINGS END is a poetic short film about two friends who are coming to terms with the painful truth that a shift in perspective can sometimes end a friendship. We hear Sofia's emotional response to the friendship breakup, as she reflects on the conflict that has come between her and Isabel (Jenny Ellegård), her former ride-or-die; this internal voice is filled with sadness, guilt and confusion. Gradually Sofia begins to remember parts of the friendship that were good and honest, as she finds a new perspective; forgiveness.

The project is supported by Mediefabrikken's directing initiative for women and has received post-production funding from Viken UNG.
