Summary, etc.:
On the hottest day of the year in Oslo, paths cross for a handful of desperate people.. Frode and Milla have their first child but soon learn that he will not live long without an expensive operation which they cannot afford. Bobbie-Pop is a faded singer who tries to commit suicide. Leon is an institutionalized mental patient who hopes to keep a 10-year- old date on his birthday with his teenage sweetheart. Leon's brother, Trygve, gets a weekend leave from prison to be with Leon on his birthday but plans to use the furlough to escape. Overseeing Leon and protecting him is his guardian angel Vidar -- Leon's best buddy at the institution -- who sees things no one else can see, and who may be able to save everyone, except himself.. Winner of Best Film and Best Screenplay at the Norwegian Amanda Awards.
