SECOND HALF

by Hilde Heier

synopsis

Erik considers leaving his wife and children for his somewhat younger lover Kaja. Sverre reluctantly has to participate in swinging in an attempt to boost a relationship that has gone dull. Their father visits his beloved – but senile – wife every week, and has started wondering if there wasn't anything more to life. The father and his two sons meet every Sunday, but all they talk about is soccer – and the fear that their favourite team Skeid would have to move down one division. A comedy about the big questions everyone ponders in life, and about the way men have a tendency to talk about football instead.
