Doing a typical assistant job, she learns about systematic harassment from her boss and tries to attract the colleagues’ attention to the problem, but doesn’t find any support. Jane’s boss is a powerful magnate who hasn’t been shown in the film directly. His actions could be seen only through the main heroine’s eyes.

The Painter and the Thief

This stunning film is about young Czech painter Barbora Kysilkova and thief Karl-Bertil Nordland who stole two of her paintings that are displayed in an Oslo gallery. Being caught, Norland says that he can’t remember why he did it as he knew that he couldn't get big money for this “scribble.” Barbora isn’t much interested in the thief’s punishment. She wonders where he takes her paintings and what happened to them. Eventually, when she meets the thief, she decides to paint his portrait and, thus, their friendship starts. These two fly in the face of public demand to show how society gives people around labels, and they stick to them forever without any chances to be changed.
