Most of his previous films had been skiing documentaries. Here he uses a style evocative of documentaries to show the day to day perambulations of some various outsiders in Gothenberg Sweden, with the central figure being a developmentally disabled young man who plays guitar. It's a seeminly chaotic narrative that creates meaning from tiny scraps of seemingly diffuse information.
