The World is Waiting

Mariken Halle

We meet three Swedish women working as waitresses in Oslo one summer. They are going to start their own theatre and need money. They get advice from older men on how to start (or not to start) a company. A lot of people seem to be worried. Summerhouses are getting sold. A pregnant woman collapses in her own baby shower. A father figure shows up with bigger and bigger presents. A film crew is celebrating the premiere of a film all of them hate. Our waitresses guide us around in this world of struggling people trying to stake out a future.
