The Art of Negative Thinking is a burlesque drama about Geirr (33), who has become severely handicapped in a traffic accident.Given his isolation, weapons fixation, self medication and limitless bitterness, his girlfriend Ingvild (30) doesn't know how to handle him any longer. She therefore invites a municipal positivity group to their home. Consequently, the stage is set for 24 intense hours at Geirr and Ingvild's place. Geirr is the only one who refuses to see anything in a positive light. Gradually, he is joined by all the positivity group members. Geirr forces everyone through a tunnel of desperation, anguish and hopelessness, before the day dawns and they once again catch sight of light, if only as a faint glimpse of hope.
