When Mia’s husband Frederik is caught embezzling 12 million dollars from the school where they both work, his behavior is blamed on a brain tumor found in his frontal lobe. Mood swings, fits of anger, poor judgement, and impulse control are all signals of disturbance to this area of the brain. However, through flashbacks and testimonials, it is revealed that many of these symptoms resemble Frederik’s natural temperament before he got sick. As the line between Frederik’s personality and the effects of his tumor becomes less clear, Mia is led down a rabbit hole that will tear her family apart and leave her questioning if she ever really knew her husband. YOU DISAPPEAR is a haunting and thought-provoking psychological thriller that explores the mysteries of the brain along with one big question: Are we driven purely by chemistry, or does free will exist? (In Danish and Swedish with subtitles) —G.S.
