Dino, a young Swedish girl, has fled Sweden’s mass unemployment for better fortune in Oslo. But like many other young immigrant Swedes, she finds herself an outcast and barely surviving on irregular work and hard partying. When she lands a job as a housekeeper in an upper middle-class Norwegian household she is thrown into a life very far from her own. During a few sultry summer weeks she ends up in the center of an odd love triangle and an unpredictable struggle for affection and dominance. Underdog is both a tender story of privilege and longing and a humorous recognition of the shifted power balance between Sweden and Norway—a reality in which Swedes have become Norwegians’ servants. First feature.
