A Piece of my Heart

Isabella (35) is a driven business woman in Stockholm’s finance world. When she goes home to the small town she grew up in to celebrate her father’s sixtieth birthday, she feels like a winner, the only one in her old school gang that things have really gone well for. Isabella’s selfconfidence falters when she realizes that Simon, her great love from her teen years, is going to marry Isabella’s childhood friend Molly, and that she isn’t invited to the wedding. Isabella is accustomed to getting what she wants, and it disturbs her to see Simon so happy with someone else. Unfortunately, there are some feelings that never go away.

A PIECE OF MY HEART is based on the musical work of legendary Swedish artist Tomas Ledin. Lyrics that tell timeless stories of humanity and refrains that have taken hold of generations of listeners inspired the story and are woven into dialogues throughout the film. Paying tribute to Thomas Ledin, who accompanied ABBA as backing vocalist on its world tour in 1979-1980 and represented Sweden at the 25th edition of Eurovision Song Contest with his first number one hit "Right Now" (Original title "Just Nu!"), A PIECE OF MY HEART's ambition is to create new versions of his songs that respect the originals and include his music as it was composed especially for this film.
