The roving Gritt (Birgitte Larsen) fights the exhausting battle of establishing her ideas into practice as a autodidact performing artist arriving the capital of the self acclaimed winners of the world lottery. We follow her during her first week in Oslo, and through a philosophical but rather dissociative voice we find a person with a huge gap between her inner and outer world.
Retrett deals with alienation, dignety and courage of dreams, in a poetic and humorous way.
