Synopsis / Plot
In a conservative, super-pious Danish town, the widower Morten Borgen -- the father of three boys -- cuts against the grain of the community with his constant heretical doubt. One of his sons, Mikkel Borgen, is entangled in an interfaith romance with a fundamentalist's daughter, while the second, Anders Borgen, is an agnostic, and the third, Johannes Borgen believes that he actually is Jesus Christ -- a conviction ridiculed by almost everyone as pure insanity.
