Danish original text, English translation
Childhood friends Frederik and William have always been close, but their friendship is put to the test when they both fall in love with Ellen. Being torn between her love for both the men, Ellen marries William, despite being pregnant with Frederik’s child. This is more than their friendship can take. Years later, the two men meet again at Ellen’s funeral – to say a final goodbye to her and to each other.
An intimate musical about friendship, love and forgiveness. The soundtrack of new, catchy compositions is inspired by the great American songbook with an unmistakably modern and Scandinavian twist.
