An intimate debut feature about love, sex, new romance and modern relationships, directed by and starring Swedish actor Fanni Metelius (Force Majeure, 2014).
Photographer Mika and musician Tesfay meet and become each other’s first loves. After the heady days of new romance – partying, infatuation and sex – they decide to live together, but this next phase of their relationship is fraught with difficulties. Daringly candid, both in its conception and its fearless performances, The Heart is a refreshing take on the joys and perils of modern love.
