    • Synopsis
    • Have you ever fantasised about going out for a walk one evening, and never returning? Have you ever been thinking about stepping out of your life and into some new reality; without asking permission?
      Tomas, mid-40s, lives with his loving wife Sara and has for several years toyed with these ideas. His secret disappearance fantasies have added colour and excitement to his otherwise (in his own mind) dull life. His planning intensifies every spring, when people around him get involved in their domestic spring routines. Time has come to act, and one spring day, he tricks the world into believing that he has drowned himself in the harbour.
