Applaus Applause

When the critically acclaimed, tough and aging actress Thea Barfoed ends her rehab, she confronts a hard choice. During her heavy drinking period she divorced and lost custody of her two boys. Now she wants them to be a part of her life again. Christian, her ex husband, is quickly softened by her tough manipulative but charming figure and agrees. She has to prove to herself and to him that she is worth the try. But the hard life on stage and the ghosts of the past slowly come knocking on her door. Thea is forced to face her inner voices. She is bound to give in to her faith, and make the choice.

Written by Anders August and Martin Zandvliet. Directed by Martin Zandvliet.
