Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In this Swedish comedy, Felix wants to transcend his limitations completely. To that end, he leaves his country home and enrolls in training as a fireman's apprentice. If all goes well, not only will he overcome his fear of heights, but also his fear of dangers of all kinds. Alas, things do not go well, and he is dismissed. Felix does show courage, however, when he talks his father out of a suicide attempt. Then for some reason, the boy chooses to steal an ambulance: he plans to try his hand at taking a patient to a hospital, somewhere, sometime. What happens next is more than he bargained for, but that's not all bad.
