The Magic Life of V

The Magic Life of V
Tonislav Hristov / 2019, Finland, Denmark, Bulgaria, 87 min

A young woman from Finland uses role-playing games to deal with childhood trauma.

Wizards, magic spells, and heroic sword battles are just fantasy for some, but for Veera they’re a meaningful part of conquering her inner trauma. When Veera transforms into her LARP (live-action role-play) persona V, the game’s fantasy battlefields give her a space to combat her psychological turmoil. Tormented by her past, Veera finds in LARP the support and solace she needs to become the hero of her own story. The film is an intimate representation of an epic emotional journey, where Veera will need V’s courage if she’s going to confront her most intimidating challenge of all.
