A satire, psychological drama and comedy rolled into one. Anna, a 24-year-old unemployed actress, makes ends meet by looking after Valentin; the father of Jørgen, a businessman Anna met while acting in a commercial. Valentin is old. His mental faculties are not always on an even keel, however, he serves as an audience for the roles Anna didn't get at auditions. Jørgen is eager to settle his father's estate, but Valentin's mental state, it turns out, isn't quite as feeble as the hospital staff and Jørgen think. Soon Anna has to call on all her acting skills, to find out what it is Valentin is hiding from them all and to retain her self-respect.
Behind this entertaining story lie Erik Clausen's reflection on Denmark today: in his own words, a land of material wealth and mental poverty.
