Digital Presentation - In this heartwarming and hilarious crowd-pleaser, Göran (Gustaf Skarsgård) is a doctor who's always wanted to become a father. He is married to his partner, Sven (Torkel Petersson), and they have been cleared for adoption by Swedish authorities. But no country seems to be willing to give a child to a homosexual couple. Göran refuses to give up his dream of having what so many others take for granted—a real family. Then Göran and Sven receive a letter with an offer from social services to take care of "Patrik, age 1.5," a Swedish child who needs a new family. They happily accept the offer and prepare the nursery for the baby's arrival. On the day that little Patrik is expected to arrive, a lanky teenager (Thomas Ljungman) rings their doorbell. He says his name is Patrik and that he has come to live with them. They realize, horror-struck, that their little baby Patrik is actually a juvenile delinquent; there has been a clerical error and a decimal point was misplaced. "Patrik, age 1.5" is actually "Patrik, age 15." And to add insult to injury, he is also homophobic!
