Dansen

Annika’s life couldn’t get any better. She is running a successful dance school and she is head over hills in love, with Lasse, a handsome, if somewhat uncommunicative electrician. So when Lasse mumbles something about him serving a prison sentence for rape ?unjustly of course- Annika is too happy to pay attention. But when a series of anonymous phone calls and, more worryingly, Lasse’s violent rages begin to gather like storm clouds over their relationship, Annika finds it increasingly difficult to turn a blind eye to her man’s past. Better known to Athenian audiences for her 2006 A Soap, Pernille Fischer Christensen returns with an engaging drama on relationships and deep buried secrets
