Linda (Disa Östrand) is addicted to shopping, racking up debts, putting her diabetic daughter in jeopardy and lying to her boyfriend. A drama that puts a spotlight on a serious issue, but has nothing to say about it and doesn’t know how to illustrate the appeal of the addiction to the lead character in a convincing way. Things continue to go south for Linda, but it’s all too slow and lacking in energy; when a film this short feels alarmingly protracted, perhaps a feature was the wrong way to go.
