Dark Horse

Daniel (Jakob Cedergren) lives in Copenhagen and earns his living by painting love murals on walls. He has earned only 7 dollars, in the past four years. His greatest concern is the fact that he is always being chased by somebody: parking wardens, police or landlord. He manages to lead a relatively carefree life, regardless.

Daniel cruises around the city in his run-down Fiat 500 and listens to classical music, never taking notice of everyday problems, seemingly. It all ends on the day, when he falls in love with Franc (Tilly Scott Pedersen) — a girl who just as reckless and charming, as Daniel. She is also very absent-minded. Daniel knows that he has finally found a girl for him.

Dark Horse is a grotesque story about people who are unbelievably laid-back, about encounters that change lives forever and about love fever that makes elephants walk the streets.
