    • Synopsis
    • The Almost Man is Henrik, a 35 year old man who still parties with his high-school buddies like they were still in they're 20s. His mother cares for him like he's still a child. And he's in a relationship that's based on goofing around. Now, his girlfriend Tone is pregnant and Henrik has to take a serious job, move into a conform duplex, calm down the partying, and start behaving like a father to be - like an adult. But as Henrik feels the pressure to mature, and to do it quickly, his frustrations surface in unforeseen ways.
