“Nothing means anything, so it’s not worth doing anything.” With these words Pierre shocks everyone at school. To prove the contrary, the class starts to collect everything that has meaning. But what begins with old photos soon threatens to escalate: Gerda has to part with her hamster. Li’s adoption certificate, little Emil’s coffin and a statue of Jesus also land on the Mountain of Meaning. When Sofie had to sacrifice her innocence and Johan his index finger, parents and police intervene. Only Pierre remains unimpressed. And the class takes revenge on him… A shocking parable about growing up, education and violence in our society.
