Sofie has dropped out of university and later ended up in an existential vacuum in which everyday life is marked by discouragement, stagnation and despair over how she must reinvent herself.

In glimpses we are invited into Sofie's monotonous everyday life, consisting of long mornings, TV shows under the sheet, bowling when the girlfriends have time, triviality at work and insomnia until late night. We are allowed to dwell on Sofie and study key feelings like frustration, powerlessness and feeling like the smallest person in the world, just emerging in a state of crisis when the awareness of future career begins to occur.
