Based on a true story about political corruption and underage call girls, the paranoid thriller makes the hypocrisy of the free and easy 1970s painfully clear.
Stockholm, late 1970s. The model utopian society. Political neutrality and atomic power march hand in hand with women's liberation and the sexual revolution. But under the polished surface, other desires are eager to be fulfilled. Within a stone’s throw of government buildings and juvenile homes lies the seductive, glittery and dirty world of sex clubs, strip shows, discotheques and apartments used for illicit and profitable rendezvous. Call Girl tells the story of how young Iris is recruited from the bottom rung of society, into a ruthless world where power can get you anything.
“Call Girl is a story of lost innocence: the young girls’, the police’s, the politicians’. Weaving together multiple storylines to tell a larger tale of society and of humanity, it’s a personal social thriller about Sweden in a time of sexual liberation and confusion.” (Mikael Marcimain)
