Smitten with a woman he sees on the subway platform, Alex (Nikolaj Lie Kass) impulsively leaves his girlfriend, Simone (Maria Bonnevie) in pursuit of the stranger. Alex and Aimee (also played by Maria Bonnevie) first share a conversation in a bar, and then spend the night together in her hotel room. But there's a hitch: Aimee is married. This beautiful stranger has accompanied her husband, a renowned author (Krister Henriksson), on his book tour to Copenhagen. Suddenly, she is making plans to leave her noncommunicative husband and run away with her new lover. Meanwhile, following his night with Aimee, Alex finds his world turned upside down and inside out. He returns to his apartment to find that it doesn't exist, and neither Simone, nor his friends and family, know who he is. Is this a sign that he should pursue a life with Aimee? Or is the universe simply trying to teach Alex a lesson? This debut feature film from director Christoffer Boe, who also cowrote the screenplay, received the Camera d'Or and the Youth Prize at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival.
