Solveig Melkeraaen is a resourceful filmmaker who has been used to being able to do anything and everything. But, one day, it stops. She’s admitted to acute psychiatric care, diagnosed with severe depression. Electroconvulsive therapy is the solution, and Solveig gets her life back. But her behavior patterns are a part of her. Will she lose it all again? GOOD GIRL is a documentary about Solveig and her family, and a film about perfection, control, fear, and about laughing when everything seems dark.
