Comedy. Sex. Drugs. Rock 'n' roll and wheelchairs!
Theatrical adaptation of a remarkable Norwegian film brings together elements of psychological drama and sarcastic black comedy... a.k.a. Being nice doesn't always pay off!
Wheelchair-ridden Geirr had a car accident two years ago and his wife Ingvild, trying to save their marriage, invites over a group of disabled people led by an almost disgustingly positive and composed psychologist Tori. Yet, Geirr, who enjoys war movies and Johnny Cash, decides to strike back hard.
And so over the course of a single night, not only do we come to witness self-destructive games including Russian roulette, suicide attempts or not-so-much-voluntary jumps from a window, but also watch the main characters get to know themselves, do away with a false honesty, sympathy and maybe even find a true "cure" for their souls.
