Come Along

Come Along is a flow-rhymed story about a childhood friendship that suddenly isn't so simple anymore:

    Du var dig, You were you,
    vi var os, we were us,                    
    vi var sammen, we were together,                      
    det var nok, which was fine,                        
    til den dag, jeg så dig stå sammen med dem fra klassen i en flok … 
    till the day I saw you standing with the others in a line ...         

Two friends have stuck together since primary school, but when they start their A-levels, they begin to drift apart. What do you do, when you can no longer identify with your best friend? COME ALONG is a story about struggling to fit in; about losing touch with old friends – and finding new ones.
