NotesColour and B/W Set against the background of May 18, 1993 when Denmark voted to join the Eurpean Union though the vote was followed by riots in the streets against the decision. This won't mean much to non-Europeans but the film concentrates on three stories of people who are little concerned with the political events going on around them except they all make an effort to vote. In the second story a young man is committed to a psychiatric hospital for 30 days and fears he may lose his girlfriend so he escapes. Though concerned with his girlfriend he's upset that he's not eligible to vote because of his psychiatric problems.
