Sing Me To Sleep

Robert, a forty year old postal worker, lives with his sick mother in a small village in Western Norway. His mother's final wish before she dies, is that Robert find a girl who can take care of him as she has. Wanting to fulfill her wish, he lies and tells her he has a girlfriend. Her name is Marita, and she lives in a nearby city. Robert promises to bring Marita home the next day so that his mother can finally meet her. Robert, dressed to impress, takes the ferry to Bergen to find a girlfriend, or at least someone who will pretend to be.
