After her mother succumbs to the AIDS virus, six-year-old Frida is forced to start an entirely new life under the guardianship of her uncle. An impressive portrait of a strong little personality plays out against the backdrop of a family tragedy. Summer 1993 was developed in the Script Station in 2015 and Talent Project Market in 2016 and combines the efforts of Talents alumni working as director, writer, producer, co-producer and art director.
