SWEET DISASTER tells the story of Frida, a German-Finnish painting therapist, as two events change the usual course of her life. First, she unexpectedly becomes pregnant and Felix, the father of her child, breaks up with her to re-unite with his ex who suddenly moves back. Felix admits that it's not the best timing, however it doesn't prevent him from leaving. Despite some serious health problems caused by the pregnancy forcing her to rest, Frida can't accept his leaving, and with the help of absurd, exaggerated and sometimes absolutely comic actions, she tries to get him back. Director Laura Lehmus "charms the audience with animations and surreal inspiration without slipping into artificial gimmicks. The real-life position of single moms remains constantly present"—Peter Gutting, Programmkino.  —Nancy Bixler, Jak Peters, Taylor Peterson, Bria Watson
