Newly separated from her husband and without a job, Judith (Ilse Rande) takes a young lover (Stig Ramsing), a carpenter belonging to a different world than her own upper-class shell. The macho carpenter teaches the once-frigid suburban wife a thing or two about reality (and sex), thereby forcing her to reassess her relationship with several estranged family members. Directed with a fusion of dreamy imagery and harsh realism, Jytte Rex's almost too clever approach is definitely not for everyone.
