In a desperate attempt to cure his midlife crisis, Martin has fled his family to live high up in the Norwegian mountains; Hunting and gathering like his ancestors did thousands of years ago.

Draped in deerskins, armed with a roughly hewn axe and a bow, Martin (Rasmus Bjerg) is at one with the land. Martin’s version of a mid-life crisis looks a little different than most. Hilariously ill-equipped to live off the land, he wanders the forest in a misguided attempt to regain his independence. But when he crosses paths with an injured drug dealer, he finds an unlikely ally in his quest for “manhood.”

A razor-sharp & original Scandinavian black comedy which tackles the timely issue of modern masculinity. Featuring Sofie Gråbøl (The Killing).
