Martin can’t get out of his own mind, even when he escapes from his family for a solitary weekend in the Norwegian mountains. A constant barrage of thoughts weigh him down, from the tedious decisions of everyday life, to the memories that haunt him, to the fantasies he longs for. In this uniquely compelling, frankly sexual, nearly-one-man comedy from triple-threat Ole Giaever —who wrote, co-directed, and stars in a charming and disarmingly funny performance—we hear uncensored thoughts and brutally honest observations in a stream-of-conscious monologue that exposes the raw inner life of a put-upon salary man seeking renewal. How is it all supposed to work? How can I participate in my own life as son, partner, and father? How old is that plump, graying man? 66? I have thirty years until then. Enough time to start over, even.
