It's 1969. Thirteen-year-old Frits (a compelling performance from Janus Dissing Rathke) has to contend with a depressive Dad and a tyrannical headmaster. But he fights back, inspired by television images of Martin Luther King, and encouraged by a radical teacher. This is a 'family drama' that succeeds in being both straightforward and moving.
