The horses whisper back

BOW AND ARROW is a film about life in a rehabilitation centre in picturesque surroundings in the north of Norway, where a group of people engage in farm work and take care of horses as a means of putting a difficult past behind them. Into this documentary setting walks a woman who unlike the other people we see on the screen is played by a professional actress, and it is through her eyes that we witness this untraditional form of therapy. Featuring beautiful, delicate cinematography, BOW AND ARROW is a film that mixes documentary and fiction without ever acknowledging the dichotomy between the two.
