The first present-day scene of the movie opens with Lars and Sigrit singing passionately on a desolate dreary beach in full superstar getup and, it seems, they have made it. Cut to the reality of their situation as wannabe professional singers in Lars’ father’s basement. Yeah, it’s that sad. Surprisingly, the duo does make it to the coveted competition, but in the end, they don’t win.
Sigrit does gain recognition for her singing from their town and from the audience at the competition. And, she finally gets the romantic attention from Lars that she had craved for so long. But, because Fire Saga changes its song in the competition, they are disqualified. Aren’t Lars and Sigrit winners anyway for ending up together and finding love? Maybe?
