'Keep it Together' is a warm dramedy about the sisters Lina and Petra and their families in Ystad. The sisters are opposites; Lina has a big heart but weaker impulse control, while Petra is the organized older sister who takes responsibility for everything and everyone, whether she likes it or not. Despite occasional stormy fights, the sisters are experts at lightning-fast conflict resolution. Their father, Kenneth, runs an auto repair shop and lives with his loyal companion, the dog Heaven.

Kenneth loves his daughters but is of a tougher nature and doesn't waste emotions. When Kenneth receives an Alzheimer's diagnosis, the sisters' lives are turned upside down. Grief, anger, hilarity, and liberating laughter alternate. Something must be done, but Lina and Petra are, of course, completely at odds about what to do. At the same time, they realize that life must be lived now. You can visit Lina's kitchen from the filming at Ystad Studios Visitor Center.

The series is produced by Ann Lundberg and Emma Åkesdotter Ronge for Anagram in co-production with SVT, Film in Skåne, and Helsinki Filmi, with support from Anagram's co-producer Ystad-Österlen Film Fund.
