Blind Spot is a story about the grey zones in mental illness; the blind spots hard to discover, as experienced by a mother realizing her daughter struggling with far worse issues than she realized.
The established actress Tuva Novotny (Borg/McEnroe, Annihilation) was episodic director on the Norwegian TV-shows Dag (4 episodes), and Lilyhammer (1 episode) and makes a leap into feature filmmaking with BLIND SPOT, based on her own original script.
