Marie's life gets turned upside down when the love of her live, Rasmus, takes on a teaching job at a local school in Velling. Rather unwillingly, Marie joins Rasmus in moving their roots from Copenhagen to the windy West Jutland. While Rasmus is an immediate match to the local ways, it becomes an acute culture chock for Marie, who time and time again proves herself a misfit to the locals. However, as she gradually learns to listen more and talk less, she realizes that she might need Velling as much as Velling needs her – and her quirky advice column for the local newspaper. The Land of Short Sentences is a warmhearted feature about settling down and coming to peace with oneself.
