The insecurities of men of a certain age are beautifully addressed in a clever comedy that features cameos from some well-known faces in Danish cinema.

When Mads, a frustrated and doubt-filled screenwriter in his early thirties suddenly becomes aware of his own mortality, he leaves both his job and his long-term relationship to seek out the satisfying life he always dreamed of. Errors of judgement and the shattering of idealised memories make his quest as amusing as it is difficult.
