THEY DIED WHERE THEY LIED is a razor-sharp black comedy that unfolds under the midnight sun of midsummer Sweden. Camping on the outskirts of town, burned-out couple Anna and Erik anesthetize themselves on boxed wine and replay their usual bitter arguments. Just as things begin to spin out of control, a pair of ragged berry-picking foreigners wander in from the woods.
