Tillsammans is a 2000 comedy drama set in a Stockholm commune called Tillsammans in 1975. It is a satirical look at liberal values and a bittersweet comedy. Vaguely led by the sweet-natured Göran, who will do anything to avoid a conflict, the group spends their time arguing about left-wing politics and questions such as whether doing the washing up is bourgeois. The commune's dynamics are significantly shaken when Göran's sister leaves her violent husband Rolf and moves in with her two children, Eva and Stefan.
