  • Director's Statement:
    To me, as a director, this story offers a fascinating possibility to open up the landscape of small stories and the paradoxes that the age of mobile phone business produced. In the Autumn 2013, when I heard that Microsoft had bought Nokia, my first feeling was of relief. It was finally over. Until then, Nokia had fought a stubborn interception against iPhones and the Asian smartphone invasion. Selling the business to Microsoft was a glorious defeat. Or was it?
