A mother and daughter are locked in a brief but bitter rivalry for the same man in this drama from Denmark. Fourteen-year-old Liv (Malou Leth Reymann) and sixteen-year-old Danny (Frederik Paarup) are spending Christmas with their Mother (Nastja Arcel), who is still adjusting to life on her own after a contentious divorce. Mother isn't especially interested in celebrating for the holiday, and Liv has decided to fix the traditional Christmas dinner her mother doesn't want to make. However, on Christmas Eve, Mother goes to a holiday party with her co-workers, and the next morning Liv and Danny discover she brought home a handsome man in his mid-20's, Jonas (Paw Henriksen). As Mother tries to sleep off the effects of the evening's drinking, Jonas joins Liv in the kitchen to help make dinner, and the girl quickly becomes smitten with the houseguest. However, when Mother finally joins the party, her sexual attraction to Jonas become obvious, and Liv becomes infuriated with her mother, who clearly has the upper hand in winning the attentions of the charming stranger. Liv (aka Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star) was written and directed by Heidi Maria Faisst for Danish television, though it later made the rounds of the European film festival circuit.
