Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Bo Larsen, Magnus Millang, Lars Ranthe
Four friends, all teachers at various stages of middle age, are stuck in a rut. Unable to share their passions either at school or at home, they embark on an audacious experiment: to see if a constant level of alcohol in their blood will help them find greater freedom and happiness. At its heart is Martin, an unappreciated tutor, husband and father. Playing a once brilliant but now world-weary shell of a man, the ever surprising Mikkelsen delivers a touching, note-perfect performance. A witty script uses this bold premise to explore the euphoria and pain of an unbridled life.
