Overview Alle skrittene et helt liv krever

Autobiographical and surreal elements interact when Kristian Hæggernes writes about finding an abandoned infant outside his door, a boy who seems to grow several years older every night. The two of them live closely together throughout a week which is both usual and highly unusual. This impossible person, who perhaps is called Stig, stimulates reflections about possible pasts, presents and futures for his involuntary father-figure.
