In the House of Angels / Dei Mjuke Hendene

InThe House Of Angels

More than half of the media stories on the elderly in the nineties deal with private wards and the right to have a shower every day, in other words the initiatives, the reforms, and the political intentions towards senior citizens. But behind the curtains in a Norwegian home for the elderly, one hears whispers about hands. The absence of hands.
