Gritt is a Norwegian woman with big ideas. She wants to make a socially critical theatre production entitled "The White Inflammation" but can never put into words exactly what it's supposed to be about. The tragedy is that no one wants to hear what she has to say: doors slam in her face and her creative dreams go up in smoke. When her situation becomes more desperate, the opportunity to assist at a theatre offers Gritt the chance to stage her own performance, with the goal of burying capitalism and the patriarchy for good.

"Conducted with incredibly precise direction, "Gritt" channels paganism and Jewish mythology to construct a modern-day fable propelled forward by Birgitte Larsen's charmingly sympathetic titular antihero. Part situationist tragi-comedy, part feminist rallying cry, Itonje Søimer Guttormsen constructs a frenetic and psychologically intimate portrait of the existential rat-race in search of meaning within a capitalist system that commodifies ideals and the potential for self-realization." (Andrei Tănăsescu)
