Elling, 40 years old, loses his mother. He is sent to an asylum where he meets Kjell Bjarne, a massive individual of the same age, innocent, virgin and always thinking of women. After two years spent in the Broynes institution, the heroes are moved, due to a special, state-financed program of social reintegration, to an apartment where they have to tend for themselves. A social assistant guides them, supervises them and teaches them how to live. Initially scared every time the phone rings or every time they have to go shopping, the two gradually find ways of adapting to society, Elling even discovering his talent as a poet. The performance presents the path to social reintegration of the two lonely heroes, frightened to face the real life. It’s a path full of humor, but also of deep human kindness.
