Hawaii, Oslo

Synopsis: Hawaii, Oslo is the story of a handful of people who cross each other's path without necessarily knowing each other, during the hottest day of the year, in Oslo. We follow Frode and Milla. They are having their first child, who they are told will not live long. We follow Bobbie-Pop, a faded singer who tries to commit suicide. We follow Leon, an institutionalized kleptomaniac who is loking for Åsa, to whom he has a ten year old deal to get married. We meet Leon's brother, Trygve, who fetches Leon at the institution to celebrate his birthday, but who himself has plans to use his leave from prison to run away. And most of all we meet the angel Vidar, Leon's best buddy at the institution, who sees things no one else can see, and who may be able to save everyone - except himself?

This is Car 4 requesting assistance

to Schou's Square. We hit someone.

-Hi, Ella. Did you call?


Everything OK?

Sleep tight.

Want the door closed,

or cracked open?

This idiot tried to

hang a poster in my room!

-What happened to you?

-Let him go.

Be nice. Whatever you do to Leon,

you also do to me.

-You're my guardian angel.

-Knock it off, Leon.

-What have I done?

-If sa is in town, you'll meet her.

She may not come.

She may have forgotten me.

How could she forget you, Leon?

What do I do, when I meet her?

You'll just have to

tell her the truth.

I'll be sa.

Say it to me.

Three words.

Three words, Leon. Come on.

Look at me, Leon.

If you can't say it to me,

how can you say it to her?

Who's the biggest hero, Leon?

Sleep now.

Rest up for your big day tomorrow.


Can't you just

take my place tomorrow?

Who's the biggest hero?

-Leon, Leon, Leon.

-Now go to sleep.


The weather in Oslo will be nice,

with temperatures over 30 degrees.

There is a chance of thunderstorms

later in the afternoon.

Winds will be from the northeast.

The weather in eastern Norway...

I've never seen him so upset.

He expects to meet sa, but I

have dreamt that she won't show up.

Stop it! He just went running.

He always comes back.

I never have time to do anything

before it's too late.

Take my shift for me.

That's all I ask.

Dorte, I have to find Leon!

When does he ever sleep?

Remember when Vidar got drunk

at the Christmas party?

He told me

his grandfather was going to fall.

He called his grandfather

to warn him.

As the phone rang, his grandfather

fell, broke his neck, and died.

You're the paper girl, right?

You probably know

everyone around here.

You have keys

and can open all kinds of doors.

Can you deliver this for me?

-Where the hell have you been?


-Where have you been?


What are you up to?


What are you staring at, fuckface?

You talking to me?

I'm just looking for someone.

Have you seen him?

That stroke patient...

He stood in that 10th floor window

to wave to his sons.

He got dizzy, fell out, and died.

The oldest son, who had waved,

thought it was his fault.

But the window latch was broken.

Stroke patients get dizzy.

So whose fault was it?

The window,

the hospital, the patient himself...

But it wasn't your fault!

You just wanted to wave to your dad!

How could he know.



-It's a...

-Don't tell me. It's a boy.


It's a boy!

Thanks for your help!

It's a boy! I have a son!


-You haven't hit anyone?

-No, we haven't.

-Is this a first for you?

-No, I've delivered several babies.

Are you ready

to cut the umbilical cord?

-The umbilical cord?


You can do it.

Come on!

He looks just fine.

Take these.

Just cut right between here.

It's OK.

Go ahead and cut.


Come to mommy.

You never know

how long you'll get together.

I dreamt that you drove

through town in this ambulance.

I dreamt that you were driving.

I knew it was a boy!

Are you OK?

Have you seen this person?

He was supposed to get run over.


Remember to cherish this moment.

Every moment.

-What do you mean by that?

-Cherish the moment.

What do you think we're doing?

We're cherishing!

-Get him out of here!

-Calm down.

We have a person with low

respiration at 4B Copenhagen Street.

Car 7 is on its way.

4B Copenhagen Street?

-Do you think it's her?

-Not necessarily.

-But it could be her.

-It isn't.

This is car 4.

We're near Copenhagen St.

-You go first. Car 7 can take over.
