Tomorrow was shot at a high school in a suburb of Stockholm. A large screen shows the faces of the secondary school teenagers. The camera slowly pans past, allowing each personality to stand out clearly.
The portrayed are clearly aware of the camera and self-conscious about their appearance. Thus the portrait records not only the individuals, but displays also how they themselves wish to appear.
On a smaller screen, hanging in front, the whole group is shown in a single, all-inclusive slowly panning image. The observer is privy to simultaneous but contrasting realities.
