Nothing to lose
Filmfest 2008

Convinced of his innocence, a man accused of murdering his father and sister escapes a high security mental hospital. On the run from the police he takes a young runaway girl hostage. As the two form a bond, we come to realize that nothing is what it seems. "When the parole board denies his request, Johan breaks out of jail with the idea of getting his mother to testify favorably on his behalf. Mom's not home, but a deadly visit to granny provides her address in Belgium. On the way, he kidnaps 13-year old Tessa, who falls prey to Stockholm syndrome even after he blows Mom away for calling him crazy..." Variety
