A holiday away from the self

Erika has it all. She's in a good relationship, she has a good job and a large circle of friends. Then one day it all slips out of hand. Suddenly all the things that made her life perfect no longer mean anything, and unable to snap out of it, Erika joins a therapy group. As the seances proceed, the group decides to check into a hotel where removed from the trappings of their lives, they are free to experiment with identities and rediscover a sense of purpose. With HOTEL, Lisa Langseth establishes herself as a director in the vein of fellow Swedes Ruben Östlund and Anna Odell.
