Jill lives with her younger brother and a mother whose fluctuating mental state and alternative views on parenting forces the 14-year-old girl into a caretaker role far beyond her years. When their absent father pays one of his rare visits, it seems like everything is going to work out fine, but then tragedy strikes and Jill and her brother are forced to fight for their very survival. Featuring gripping drama and impressive acting, PHOENIX is a remarkable debut feature from director Camilla Strøm Henriksen.
