TED – För Kärlekens Skull

Ted Gärdestad för kärlekens skull
Ted Gärdestad

Directed and written by Hannes Holm.

Music by Jimmy Lagnefors and Gaute Storaas

Ted, a 15-year old tennis player, gets signed by the man behind Abba and and becomes a teen idol sensation in the early 70’s. The multi-talented Ted has everything going for him. His young producers are Björn & Benny, his background singers are Agneta & Anni-Frid and his writing partner is his ever loyal older brother Kenneth. But somewhere along the road things are getting out of hand and Ted loses himself completely. Stricken by mental illness he somehow manages to write some of the most beautiful music in his career at the end of his short life.
