PrimeText translated Burrowing from Swedish to Swedish for the hard of hearing for the Swedish DVD release. The film was a critical success and the co-director Fredrik Wenzel, the other director being Henrik Hellström, was awarded the underground award Hets for his outstanding work during the year.
In a small neighbourhood lives a group of people for whom living is not easy, they can’t seem to find their place in this cold and fast society. 11-year old Sebastian can’t seem to catch a break and his mum is constantly angry with him. Through his eyes we see the unblemished version of the modern Sweden, the vision of justice, equality and work for all has gone awry. Underneath the perfect villa façade anger and frustration is growing and the inevitable outcome is a violent eruption.
