Summary
It is 1989 and all over Europe Communism is crumbling. Arvid Jansen, thirty-seven, is in the throes of a divorce. At the same time, his mother is diagnosed with cancer. Over a few intense autumn days, we follow Arvid as he struggles to find a new footing in his life, while all the established patterns around him are changing at staggering speed.
