THE LEAP

by Henning Carlsen

synopsis

When 42-year-old Tobias is told he has a terminal illness, he plunges into the abyss. The feeling makes him recall the time he was 13 and his girlfriend persuaded him to jump off her father's balcony with an umbrella as a parachute. The two stories are revealed in parallel and, gradually, become intertwined.
