He hates to travel, but is constantly on the road. He dreads opening nights, but cannot avoid them. It is hard work to be Europes most sought-after theatre playwriter. This is a charming portrait of a "shy devil".

We follow Jon Fosse over six hectic months from Japan, to Germany, to France where he receives the "Ordre National du Mérit", and we follow him back to his little house overlooking the beautiful vast Norwegian landscape by the fiord where he finishes yet another play.
