Eskil Vogt's experimental seriocomedy Blind stars Ellen Dorrit Petersen as Ingrid - a blind Norwegian woman wed to husband Morten (Henrik Rafaelsen) and residing in contemporary Oslo. Despite his apparent fidelity to her, she grows neurotic and then paranoid about his activities outside of their apartment. During her long, empty hours alone, she begins to develop very specific, fear-ridden ideas about what he is up to, which she pours wholeheartedly into the stories that she's typing out on her keyboard. In time, the tales take on a life of their own, and Ingrid assumes a kind of godlike role, freely (and humorously) manipulating both her husband, and the characters who she imagines weaving in and out of his life.
