Red Sun (Röd sol)

India and Kallas are invited to Kallas' childhood friend Desma and her big house by the sea. It is late summer and the heat is unbearable. Late one evening, three children appear, alone and with nowhere to go. Desma gives the children shelter for the night, but when a threatening fire breaks out in the mountains, they are forced to stay behind. Without ever wanting it, India and Kallas become attached to the children. They begin to indulge in the kind of love and care usually reserved for parents, in the shadow of the inevitable that keeps creeping closer.

Red Sun is a love story and a family tragedy, written with distinctive precision.
