This Danish film follows the activities of a mild-mannered young military man who is so rattled by the explosions and noise of the base's firing range that he simply leaves, forgetting to return the pistol he was practicing with. He rejoins his friends in Copenhagen, takes a brief trip to Sweden, and then settles in with a college coed. However, his self-dramatizing and threats of suicide irritate her, and she indicates that she definitely wants him to leave.
