Patrik, Age 1.5 is a funny, affectionate and unpredictable gay family comedy. After a seemingly endless wait, long-term gay couple Goran and Sven have had their adoption papers approved – and infant Patrik, age 1.5 is on his way!
Everything would have been perfect too, had it not been for just a little error at the adoption agency. It seems one decimal point had been misplaced, and when a 15-year-old homophobe with a criminal past shows at their door the perfect home quickly becomes the setting for the perfect storm. Devoid of a single false note, Patrik, Age 1.5 is an satirical and frequently touching film that boldly redefines what a family is.
