    • Synopsis
    • A film about having an unusual and adventurous father, and the difficulties of becoming a grown-up when your parent is your biggest play-mate. The year is 1978. During a family crisis Magnus - 55 - looses his lust for life and becomes increasingly depressed in sweet suburbia. Nikolaj, 13, has to take responsibility for the family, and attend to his fathers whims and needs. All this changes when Nikolaj discovers The Sex Pistols and forms his own punk band. Sceptical at first, Magnus soon finds the energy of punk greatly stimulating. Father and son now forms a unusual alliance - on their way to ruin or recovery.
