Short Film Profile

Spøkelset Martin

Martin Hasle (28) is multihandicapped after a car accident 9 years ago. He got a severe brain damage and can no longer move or speak, but he communicates through a computer he handles with his left thumb. He lives in a nursing home and is 100% dependent on help 24 hours a day. But he does not get that, so he spends most of the day waiting - alone. All his friends have gradually stopped coming to visit, and the only people that do come are his parents, and social worker Bente who seems to have her own agenda with Martin.

Film notes
