After two years at Brøynes Psychiatric Clinic, Elling is set to return to an apparently normal everyday life. Along with his somewhat more challenged roommate Kjell Bjarne, he has been given a welfare apartment in Majorstua in Oslo, and is expected to take care of himself. For someone who finds crossing a restaurant floor comparable to crossing Antarctica, this new life is fraught with obstacles that need to be surmounted. With irreproachable willpower, a slow-developing courage and some help (along with threats of being forcibly returned to Brøynes), Elling and Kjell Bjarne dodder along unfamiliar roads. (www.nfi.no)
