Der Kommer En Dag



To raise funds to achieve

the following objectives.

I believe the nation should commit

itself to achieving the goal -

- within a decade, to get a man

to the moon and safely back home.

Based on real events

The Day Will Come

Autumn, 1967

Journey to the Gudbjerg

was like a time machine.

For every kilometer you came

further and further back in time.

You recognize it by the smell.

In the silence and shadows on

the superintendent's office.

Take your clothes off and take that on.

Erik Johansen.

You are number 47. Elmer, you're number 30.

Take your clothes off.

Come on! Into bed.

It shall be quiet. Is that understood?

Sleep well.

I can not remember so much from the

world outside of Stoney Creek.

But I remember the brothers.

- Erik?

- No. Sleep.

Elmer told me that he

was thinking about -

- that there were other

places worse than here.

One could be hospitalized with

an illness big as a zodiac.

But that was before he knew

anything about Gudbjerg.

Stop them!

Stop the thief!

Stop them!

Stop the thief! Stop the thief!

- Elmer! Throw the package.

- No. I can make it.

- No you can't.

- Yes I can.




Come on, run.

- Stop!

- Come on, Elmer!



I'm very sorry.

I'll talk to them.

It is' wrong, but it's little things.

If it's freely exposed in the shop.

The Child Welfare no longer believe

that it helps to talk about it.

The boys' school

reports about skipping class.

There are fights,

absent-mindedness, skipping class.

I've been sick, but

it's getting better now.

How? You are a single parent.

You can't pay your bills.

You work shifts and studies.

How should I pay when I don't

get paid the same as a man?

I solder the same metal gadgets

and must pay the same bills.

Right now it is about the

children's best interests.

Next time you can't cope with the

task, the state must do it for you.

Do you understand what I'm saying?

You're grounded rest of the month.

Go to the school every day.

My telescope is broken, and I

will see the rocket tonight.

After homework it's

straight to bed.

- You promised

- It was your own fault, meat ball.

- Stop!

- He shall not say meat ball!

Why can't you just

make some more money?

Why can't I get pocket money?


The brothers' father hanged himself

in a coke basement a few years earlier.

So the mother was all they had.

You look gorgeous.

Elmer had clubfoot. For him,

it answered the question of

whether or not he could travel

all the way to the moon.

I never met their mother.

But I can imagine her.

When they made her laugh.

It could well be that the

journey was difficult.

Oh! Honey.

You just had to keep

believing in it.

You can't see anything.

They never land.

They can't land in the

middle of a crater.

They say there is only stone.

It doesn't matter.

It's bigger out there than you think. Can

you go to the moon, anything can happen.

- If you have the right suit on.

- You will never be an astronaut.

- Yes I do!

- It's not possible with a clubfoot.

- They haven't suits for someone like you.

- You can't know that.

Now I have to go to work.

Elmer, you go to bed. Come on.

Now you need to get some sleep, and then

we read about that rocket in the newspaper.

I'll see you when I wake up. If there

is something important, call uncle.

Their mother never reached

the factory that evening.

In the bicycle basement, she got ill

and crawled back to the apartment again.

The disease had come over her.

Their uncle said, it was called cancer.

- May we see her?

- Not so good right now.

- I want to see her.

- You have to wait.

Why can't I see her?

If one read about cancer in a book,

it said, it was a Zodiac

in the Northern Hemisphere.

Their sister can't possibly

take care of the children.

- I'm not talking about my sister.

- We have looked at your request.

You have no permanent home.

Your latest income

was three months ago.

Sorry, you can't bring anything with you.

- I'll take care of your binoculars.

- But why can't we stay here?

It's only until Christmas.

You need to be big. Both of you.

And you must take good care of each other.

And you must behave yourselves

and do as your told.

Will you promise me that?

Come on, Elmer.

They'll be fine.

It's the best place in the country.

Come on! Up!

Ten minutes to breakfast.

It will not make you prettier or

smarter to goof off.

Goes for the two new ones, too. Come on!

Sit there.


I'm Erik.

And this is my kid brother.

Eat. He is coming soon.

Our facilities are top notch. We

take pride in being self-sufficient.

In addition to schooling

the boys help

in the field, in the kitchen

and in the workshops.

- Good morning, boys!

- Good morning, principal Heck.

This is teacher Hammershi, who

takes over the teaching of Danish.

- Please welcome her.

- Good morning, teacher Hammershi.

That's good. Continue eating.

Most of our boys need

very basic learning.

I do not demand miracles, but they

must be able to read road signs

and manuals and other

easily accessible texts.

They deserve to leave here with

all the help they can get.

- Let me show you the classroom.

- Sorry. Hello.

Where shall the new ones start?

It depends on what they can.

Where are they?

Stand up.

The Principal shall talk with you.

Good morning.

What's you villains names?

- Erik.

- Elmer.

What will you be when

you grow up, Elmer?
