I want you to tell me what happened.

For the last time.

Do you understand?


We bought a house in the country.

Well... our dream came true.

Baby, I here by declare

this piece of land ours.

The final detail.



Oh no, for God's sake.

Use this.

It's just been painted.

- Congratulations on your new home.

- Thank you.

- I want to show you something.

- What?

Wait and see.

Come on, baby.


- What's up?

- Nothing.

I just felt like coming up here

to enjoy the view.

- Hey, look. There's an eagle.

- There is?

- I don't see any eagle.

- You're looking in the wrong place.

No, look at the rocks.


Somebody wrote something.

Somebody proposed.


How romantic.


We bought the house,

so why not go all the way?

Try it on.


I will marry you.

What the f***?

- What was that?

- Come on.


- What's up?

- What happened?

Do you see anything?

What is it?

Don't look!

We can't just stand here staring.

Let's go.

- Let's go, baby.

- Sure.

- Think we should report it?

- What?

That we saw someone

running through the woods.

Negotiations are about

to break down. And in local news:

The police say the death

at the Cliffs of Mn was a suicide.

And the weather....


You are the first to see

what I am about to show you.

I think it's going to change

our view of games and reality.

Let me first take a photo of you.

I'm going to upload that photo

to Real Dreams.

Easy as pie.

There you go.

Now you're actually inside the game.

Real Dreams is a life simulator.

It enables you to do stuff

you may not dare do in real life.

- Bo, can I borrow you for a sec?

- Sure.

Bo is active in the game... now.

Everyday life is full of situations.

You may have a boss

who won't give you the raise -

- you think you deserve.

And that's the difference

between the game and reality.

Let's go to Italy

on our honeymoon.

How about Mexico?

Baby, I'm going for a swim.

Wouldn't these birdhouses be a good

idea at the Geo Center, For the kids?

Sure. Kids just love staring

at wooden boxes.

Very funny.

Kids need to experience real life

instead of video games all the time.

Oh, sh*t.

What the f***?

Crap! Oh, f***!

- Hello.

- I came to give you an offer.

Come in.

Oh, this is bad.

Oh, no.

The house is about to collapse.

All in all you're looking

at 550,000.

- 600,000.

- Plus or minus.

Maybe we can do some of it ourselves.

- I know.

- Get real, baby.

You can't put two Lego bricks together

without breaking both of them.

I know, I know.

- I heard about your problems.

- Oh? Where did you hear that?

Welcome to Mn.

Roar, the local handyman.

Bricklayer, carpenter, plumber.


Want me to come back,

or should we inspect the palace now?

- Now?

- Sure.

Well, come on in.

Raining even more inside, huh?

- Roar.

- Freja.

This way.

This is completely corroded.

Smell this. The water's been

trapped behind the wallpaper.

All it needs is plaster and paint.

It looks worse than it is.

What the hell is this?

I don't do roofs.

I'm afraid of heights.

Think you could help me

with that, Daniel?

- David.

- David, right.

You need to fix it right away.

For your own sake.

- Cheers.

- Cheers.

- Oh, and then there's that.

- What is that?

- We have lots of bugs down here.

- Sure.

That bug sounds big enough

to try the rides at the fun fair.

- I mean... It sounds big.

- Sure.

But don't worry.

I'll fix that too.

Okay. So, could you give us

an estimate?


- If you want everything fixed...

- Yes.

- It's gonna cost you 300,000.

- 300,000.

I know it's a lot of money,

but it's a big job.

Wasn't it a bit pushy of him

to show up unannounced?

He's determined...

Maybe that's a good thing?


Let's believe in it then.

Let's believe in it all.



- You're the new one from Tjrnevej?

- Yes.

- Finn finally got the house sold, huh?

- Yes.

- The house needs quite a lot of work.

- Yes.

Luckily we got a great offer.

So I heard.

- I find your trust admirable.

- Trust?

Well, I'm not one to gossip...

But the man who committed suicide

was Roar's former employer.

Never mind.

You know how people talk.

I got hit by a spark.

Roar made a glass wall for the

birdhouse, so the kids can look inside.

- Cool, huh?

- Look.

I had one just like it as a boy.

Roar says he can fix the house in

a month, if he can sleep in the shed.

The local storekeeper told me

it was Roar's former client...

...who died at the cliff.

I went to the store too.

- What a gossip.

- You don't find it strange?

Sure. It creeped me out, so I went

straight to the local police.

It's an open and shut case.

The jumper left a suicide note.

Gossip runs wild out here.

- They just told you that flat out?

- Pumpkin, we're in the country.

Yeah, we are.

Leave your imagination at work, okay?


Roar, how would you like

to join us for dinner?


We're gonna be seeing

a lot of each other.

Well, my ex-boyfriend

invited David over.

To fix our computer.

At first I thought you were a nerd.

But then I found out that you were.

Just look over there.

- You're my nerd.

- Then her computer kept going down.

So I had to come and fix it

over and over again.

- So, are you married?

- No, but... she said yes.

- Can I see?

- Sure.

- The wedding is on August 7.

- Oh yes.

And then we're off to Italy
