Filmed on location in England the film is in both English and in Swedish.

The Film challenges discrimination and the need for rights to be carried out , from Copyright rights , black civil rights , gender rights and lastly gay rights.  It presents the truth and reality of racism even amongst the wealth y and well to do where MAGDA the black lead is not accepted by her peers at the boarding school despite the financial clout being reached by MAGDAs parents.  This reality is further displayed even in the gay and lesbian relationship where KATARINA – MAGDAs love interest decides that it is best not to further develop the relations hip . It further presents conventional views on held by the church on gay and lesbian relationship whilst challenging that view with a twist
