Can you turn back the clock and relive your wild youth? In his debut feature, Christian Tafdrup examines this age-old question with great sensitivity and a good dose of dry humor, and garnished with a considerable portion of surrealism: After their son Esben moves out, Vibeke and Kjeld feel very left alone. So when they spot their old student digs up for sale, they jump at the chance to relive their glorious past. But then fate intervenes to take them by their word.
