Line, a mother with a bunch of gorgeous children. Applied once as ballet dancer but ended up in the supermarket. Her husband, mentally ill, visits now and then, fetched by the staff of the hospital. A look back: life for him, her and the children was different: lovely and normal as in paradise.
Line's beauty is not her body but her approach to life. She manages life, advising her friend at work the 'how to do it'.
Line likes to sketch. The reason is to make life for her deaf daughter more understandable. Deaf. Her brother idea: contact a publisher for a book. Whar she does. Success. But the success is short lived: less help to pay the rent and the purchased piano has to be sent back.
Everything is against her. Even her short love affair with a married man is a no-way-out. For Line is everything too much: afraid to be there where her husband is.
Then, when nothing is left to do and the only solution is the total break-down, the unthinkable is the only option for her and her friend from the supermarket and neighbor a house. For this she needs her husband: "Be quiet and say nothing. I do the talking." Two students rent two rooms. One of them has with him a piano. Line, together with her children and her friend find peace and confidence.
An unrecognized pearl of Danish film. 1991.
