Summary:
 

In the aftermath of the abolition of the Monarchy of Sweden, the Palace in Stockholm has been converted into an art museum. Christian, a curator at the museum, finds his progressive world view shaken when his mobile phone is stolen. While managing a space set to show a new installation piece, he finds a public relations company to promote the installation, creating a great deal of chaos.

 
What the Critics say:
 

"A suavely merciless take-down of the decadence of the contemporary art world." (Owen Gleiberman - Variety)
