In 2013, approximately 40 men and women and a number of dogs move into “The Rainbow” in Stockholm – the world’s first retirement home for gay people. The habitants grew up after World War II, when gays were sent to concentration camps. In this period homosexuality was outlawed, branded as a disease and deeply shameful. As Agneta, Ingbritt and Thomas move into a new home and a new community, new spaces are opened up. Will they find a home, for the first time in their lives?
There will be a Q&A with the director, Mette Aakerholm Gardell, after the film.
