A RATIONAL SOLUTION


SYNOPSIS
A Rational Solution is a tragicomic drama about active church member and paper mill worker Erland Fjellgren, who is suddenly overcome with a wild passion: he falls in love with his best friend’s wife. His rational solution – for everyone concerned to sit down and discuss the situation and then try to live all together in his and his wife’s house – sets them on a fateful course that threatens to plunge them all into the abyss.
