SWOON is the story about two rivaling amusement parks in a raging feud. GRÖNA LUND is the respected and bourgeois alternative in contrast to NÖJESFÄLTET across the alley that offers cheap beer, strippers and run-down attractions. The two families, ruling their miniature nations of rides, fortune wheels and cotton candy are determined to destroy one another when their young heirs Ninni and John unexpectedly fall in love. In the shadow of the Second World War the conflict escalates between the families in a magical and swirling tale of war, treachery and forbidden love.
