Happiness is only skin deep

Despite what seems to be the definition of a good life – with good friends, a warm and supportive family and a career as a filmmaker in a peaceful country – Ahang Bashi periodically experiences panic attacks that throw her into a deep black hole. Challenging what many see as the taboos of talking about mental health, FRAGILITY is a touching and intimate autobiographical documentary about anxiety, depression and trauma after emigrating from Iran to Sweden as a young girl.
