- Varför måste vi bo i fucking jävla kuk-Åmål?
15-year-old Elin lives in a boring Swedish town - 'fucking Amal' - and is looking for some excitement. Everyone expects her to find a boyfriend and be settled while still a teenager. Agnes is in love ...( read more )with Elin and though Elin first mocks her devotion, soon the two become an item. But Elin's big sister pushes her to go out with, and ultimately to sleep with, the more suitable Johan. Agnes feels betrayed and lets out rumours of Elin's behaviour. Soon, Elin must choose between convention and a more daring life.
The Amal of the original title, before it was sanitized for US release into Show Me Love, refers to the name of a place in Sweden. That is where young Agnes has moved with her family, a small town without much for girls her age to do except to socialize at parties, and perhaps get drunk and/or make out. Agnes has a crush on fellow classmate, Elin, who has gotten a reputation for being wild and loose with all of the boys in the school, despite the fact that she is still a virgin. Well, Agnes' birthday party comes around, and bored Elin and sis are the only ones who show at the party, where on a bet, Elin kisses Agnes, who had been rumored (correctly) to be a lesbian, and runs off. Agnes is embarrassed and Elin is ashamed of making a fool out of her, yet deep down is more disturbed by her own feelings within her. Elin is intrigued by her curiosity, and even leads Agnes on a bit, but doesn't want to give up her social standing among her peers and be ostracized for her dalliances.
