Other Places

Twenty-two-year-old Christopher travels to Copenhagen with his parents. While they are waiting for the train, his father goes off to buy a newspaper and never returns.

On a sudden impulse, Christopher sets out on a journey. When he returns after a few years of roaming, he discovers that his father had been living a secret life alongside the family life that Christopher had been part of. What happens when someone suddenly disappears? How do you deal with someone close to you turning out to be someone you don’t know? With masterful storytelling skills and deep psychological insight, Nikolaj Frobenius paints an intimate portrait of a young man who must learn to live with the knowledge that there are mysterious, unexplained places in people’s lives, and that truth as it is presented to us is far from reliable.
