Stig Dagerman was a Swedish literary sensation who published a rash of influential works in the cauldron of post-WWII Europe. Then, suddenly, he fell silent with writer’s block, and two years later, was dead. This richly textured documentary, narrated by Stellan Skarsgard, resurrects Dagerman’s profoundly resonant words.
