‘HIM’ is about a day in the life of three male characters, all of whom experience social and emotional falls. The schoolboy Harald longs for recognition without being seen, either by his teacher or at home. Unemployed Eirik feels humiliated when he is denied more help from the employment agency. No one seems to care about what he wants. Renowned screenwriter Petter loses financial support to his film about national hero Fridtjof Nansen because of gender quotation. Add to that that he struggles with a strong inferiority complex... How much pressure can these guys really handle?
