Frida meets Nina at a gallery and they fall in love. They quickly become so close that Frida loses sight of where she begins and where she ends. She is on the verge of losing it and existence becomes volatile, but Nina provides structure and defines the boundaries.
Two Words for Destruction (To ord for ødeleggelse) is a story of breakdown and submission. About how easy it is to disappear within the will of another – and about the devastating experience of having someone tighten their grip only to subsequently let you go.
