In this comedy, Viggo Hansen (Erik Clausen) has been released, set free, returned to the waters, unhooked, etc. That, at least, is how the company that he has worked at for over twenty years looks at their firing of him. It's a kindness they perform for their workers; a kindness which also permits them to open factories (using cheaper labor) in Portugal. Viggo, on the other hand, has already got plenty of problems, and being unemployed simply brings all of them to a boil. He's middle aged, which is a big enough problem. He has just found out that his son is a homosexual. He can't get along with his daughter and her insufferable husband, and he has completely lost interest in his wife. With all that on his plate, he decides to try having a little affair, and takes off with his new lady-love on a vacation. When that also turns out to be a disaster, he comes home to his wife and discovers that she seems to be wise to the whole thing.
