    • Synopsis
    • ARNE (70), is a passionate bibliophile who works for his hobby - he´s got a job at the library. The little rest of his time he shares with his sweet wife. Then one sudden day brings the death to his spouse. A whole life of stability crashes. Nor his adolescent daughter or dear books are of any help. Loneliness and indifference overrun his life and Arne plots a suicide.
      A strange wayfarer SASS (60), who travels with a backpack of books and frequents public libraries to read the newspapers, brings forth a change. Bit by bit he starts to provide Arne with the interest for life again.
      This is a warm expression of solitude and friendship, played out between funny old men in an ennobled setting of books.
