Overview Under vinduet

What to do when life gives you lemons? The main character in Under vinduet is a middle-aged supermarket worker who is on sick leave. She insists on wearing a rather old-fashioned neck-brace although there are doubts she really needs one for medical reasons.

She also has family worries. Her daughter has moved in with an older lover before finishing high school. Her husband is more occupied with his sudden passion for bicycling than he is passionate about her and their marriage.

Following the doctor’s advice, she starts a new routine of afternoon walks in the hope for a speedy recovery from her gloomy everyday life. In the course of her walks, she meets a man with a dog. They become friends and together they start spying at their neighbours during their evening strolls. Life suddenly gets much more interesting.

Under vinduet is a heartfelt, loving story told with humour and soul.
