Hannah’s Story with Heddy
The two Norwegian women Hannah and Heddy share a flat in a nameless city in Poland. They originally came there to study, but have long since drifted away from all sorts of organised life. Hannah, 46, who once dreamt of becoming a philosopher, is an anorectic, and Heddy, twenty years her junior, suffers from bulimia. A love-hate-relationship and a fragile balance have evolved between the two women: While Heddy is looking after Hannah, she is also deeply dependent on her, something that inspires nothing but contempt from Hannah’s part.
Then Heddy finds a boyfriend, Daniel, who moves into the flat. This causes a severe disruption in the two women’s relationship.
Hannah’s Story with Heddy is a peculiar dark comedy that draws new and surprising lines between the individual, the social, the existential and the political.
