47 min.Series (documentary)

Jørgen is a lifelong street musician and now he has the lead role in an animated documentary web series about his own life. In the web series we meet Jørgen in his home, where he begins to tell a story about a period of his life. Then we get a visual representation of his old memory where he assumes the role of his younger self and in a cartoon universe, he is singing through the period. During the series, we get a musical reflection of 6 periods from 1970 up until today, and get an insight into how Jørgen has become the person he is today.
