|When a man comes home - En mand kommer hjem (DNK)|
It’s summertime and the famous opera singer Karl Kristian Schmidt is on his way home to his native town to lend lustre to it with his performance. The town has come alive, and at the centre of all the madness and expectations we find Sebastian, who is engaged to the beautiful Claudia. However, when Maria shows up, they reunite in a ripe grain field, setting Sebastian’s whole life on a catastrophic course. At long last, the world famous opera singer arrives to the sound of the cheering masses and soon after he becomes acquainted with Sebastian’s break up with Claudia and love affair with Maria. During a grand gala dinner the skeletons come rattling out of the closet. A man has come home - and nothing is as it used to be!
