The King of Gulseth

The King of Gulseth

This a warm and nostalgic comedy-drama series about 13-year-old Jonis Josef and his friends, and the struggles they are going through growing up in this godforsaken place farbeyond suburbia, called Gulset.

With his narrating, Jonis (26) takes us on a subjective journey back to his teen years, to his school, his friends, his childhood home and neighbor-hood. His one and only goal as a teenager was always: To become the coolest guy in his street, the leader in the classroom, the winner on the soccer field. In short: The King of Gulset.

But when he looks back today, he realizes that he never actually really succeeded.
