Original title: Rester
Publisher: Samleren, Denmark, 1996
Genre: Short stories
A strange woman on a bench suddenly starts telling about how she had mistreated her baby. She and her husband are about to move, and out of nowhere this woman is overwhelmed with doubt about whether she should go with him. A brief moment of an ordinary day abruptly ignites an annihilating jealousy.
These realistic short stories hit the mark of almost imperceptible shifts in human relationships – the black holes that can develop in both seasoned relationships and random encounters alike.
