As the tradition requires in Sweden, students graduating from secondary school wear white caps and celebrate by riding on truck-beds through the city centre, playing loud music, dancing, drinking beer and announcing their freedom. The trucks are decorated with birch leaves, banners and flags, expressing their collective concerns as well as their individual backgrounds. Both the video and the photographs have intentionally been darkened in order to emphasize the white-capped crowds as an entity.
