Summary
Arvid Jansen is a young boy who lives on the outskirts of Oslo. It's the early sixties, his father works in a shoe factory and his Danish mother works as a cleaner. Arvid wets his bed at night and has nightmares about crocodiles, but slowly he is beginning to piece the world together. A delicate portrait of childhood in all its complexity, its wonders and confusions
