An old woman is looking out of the window behind the curtain while the policeman limes the window. The inhabitants of the village gather in the bleak street, loaded with suitcases. The authorities control that all the people have left their houses. The village is closing down.
This is the start of the film which turns out to be a bad dream. The village is not dead - on the contrary, it is full of life. There are problems with some schools and shops closing down, but there is an old tradition of solidarity, and there is a new way of thinking and new initiatives like e.g. public transport and the farmers' joint mechanization. Instead of focusing on despondency and decline the film wants to be affectionate and optimistic.
Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film,
dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution,
og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med.
Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution,
