Description:A solitary, dazzling older woman and a shy teenage student who brings flowers as a half-time job are interested to each other in this interesting tale. It is the mid-1960s and Hermann (Torstein Hølmebakk) purchase Beatles records like everybody else, he also indulges in an sexual journal or two to fulfill an increasing fascination with sex, and he is not actively seeking his casual date Unni (Karoline Waal). Instead, Hermann's creativity has been quickened by Rose (Lise Fjeldstad), a female who requests flowers for herself on a standard basis. As Rose tells Hermann the tale of how she used to work in the circus in a trapeze act but was abandoned by her partner when she got pregnant, Hermann is even more fascinated by her appeal as a woman...and a close experience of the conventional kind seems almost certain.
