Mirror, Shoulder, Signal
Sonja’s over forty, and she’s trying to move in the right direction. She’s learning to drive. She’s joined a meditation group. And she’s attempting to reconnect with her sister. But her sister won’t return her calls. Her driving instructor won’t let her change gear. And she’d rather eat cake than meditate.
As Sonja’s mind wanders back to the dramatic landscapes of her childhood – the singing whooper swans, the endless sky – she starts to realize just how lost she has become in the alienating streets of Copenhagen. But how can anyone find themselves when there’s no one to ask for directions?
Mirror, Shoulder, Signal is a poignant, sharp-witted tale of one woman’s journey in search of herself.
