Director Lone Scherfig teams with screenwriter Niels Hausgaard to tell the comedic tale of a troubled small town, and the brave few who made it their mission to keep the community together. As the citizens of a secluded Danish town gradually loose their trust in one and other, the sight of a naked man walking through town in the early hours of the morning sets off an unsettling wave of paranoia. Only when they find the naked man will the townspeople find the strength needed to move beyond this strange emotional state. Now, as a dedicated few set out to uncover the naked man's identity and re-establish their sense of community, they suddenly begin to realize that in assisting their neighbors they are simultaneously and inadvertently bettering themselves as well.
