Dania is 21 years old and grew up in a Christian congregation on the Faroe Islands. She recently moved to Tórshavn, where she became romantically involved with hip-hop artist and poet Trygvi aka Silver boy. He is from a secular family and writes dark hip-hop lyrics. Fascinated by Trygvi’s courage to write brutally honest lyrics about being human, Dania starts writing more personal texts that amounts to a collection of poems ‘Skál’, critical of the double life she and other young people are forced to live in order to fit within the strict Christian framework. Where to draw the line, when you are young and Christian? Is it a sin to drink? Is it a sin to have a boyfriend who isn’t Christian? How long is it possible to uphold a double life?
