In 2015, two large oil paintings by the Czech artist Barbora Kysilkova were stolen from the Galleri Nobel in Olso, Norway. The culprits were found within days, but not the paintings. Despondent over their loss, Kysilkova asks one of the criminals, Karl Bertil-Nordland, to sit as the subject of a new painting. In a fascinating tale of restorative justice, their sessions upend the tropes of artist and muse as both reveal much of themselves and ways that they can use this experience to make changes in their lives. In English and Norwegian with English subtitles. Contains mature content, including sexual situations, language, and violence.
