Still grieving from the inexplicable death of their daughter on her 8th birthday, Elin and Tobias take a camping trip to find their way back to each other. However, their holiday is interrupted by three psychopaths—a dandy sideshow artist, a filthy giant who carries a dead dog, and a woman who might’ve been the villainess from some Japanese horror. Force Majeure meets Groundhog Day meets The Babadook in this psychologically suspenseful, viciously funny Swedish fever dream, in which the violently humiliated couple is forced to meet their tragic fate over and over again.


Johannes Nyholm is an artist and film director based in Gothenburg, Sweden, where he runs his own production company. He started his career as a filmmaker directing music videos, and he continued with short films (Las Palmas, The Tale of Little Puppetboy). His feature debut was The Giant (2016), before Koko-di Koko-da premiered at Sundance 2019.
