"The Will", by Christian Sønderbye Jepsen, screened at IDFA and has won the DANISH:DOX AWARD at CPH:DOX and a Danish Bodil Award for Best Documentary.
In the darkly shaded family story, Henrik is in deep trouble. His girlfriend has split, his drug and alcohol abuse have gotten totally out of hand, and he is deeply in debt. When everything seems most dire and his problems almost insurmountable, a door to new life is opened when Henrik’s wealthy grandfather dies and leaves him a huge fortune. But at the promise of money, a family war breaks out, and years of failure and betrayal are revealed.
