...can be both a particle

or a wave, -

- depending on what kind of

instrument we're using.

- Hey, mom.

- Hey.

- Is something wrong?

- No, I'm home studying. Why?

We've been trying to call you.

I saw that,

but I was in class.

What kind of class?

Bio began today. I was going to call,

but things got a bit hectic.

- Isn't that in the morning?

- What do you mean?

I thought it began at 8.

Biology is in the morning, right?

Your dad showed me how we can

follow your schedule online.

Yes, no...

They moved it to 6 for this week only.

But I'm cooking food and...

What are you making?

- Just pasta and some stuff.

- Alright.

- We can talk some other time.

- Let's talk tomorrow.

- Yes.

- Yes.

- Ok. We love you.

- I love you too.

- Bye then.

- Bye.


Hello? Hey!

Is somebody calling an ambulance?

Did you go a long time without eating?

No, not really.

Did you drink anything?


- No, I'm not really a drinker.


- No, I don't drink.

- And you never experienced this before?


- Is it epilepsy?

- It's too early to say.

Do you have a history

with epilepsy in the family?

- No, not that I know about.

- I should look at your journal.

Can I call your previous doctor?

Not really. I don't want my

parents to know about this.

They don't have to know.

I'll just talk with your doctor.

Then you'll decide if you want to tell them.



- Is it anything serious?

- Not as far as we can tell.

But we'll call you to run a few

more tests in the future.

Try not to worry in the meantime.

- Hey.

- Hey.

I wanted to say hello because

I was present when -

- that thing happend.

You had a...

- Anyway, I'm Anja.

- Thelma.

- Are you feeling better?

- Yes, I'm much better now.

That's great.

- Are you attending chemistry too?

- No, biology.

That's good.

- Perhaps I'll see you in math.

- Yes.

- Goodbye.

- Goodbye.

- It's in here.

- ln here?

That's good.

- But when somebody talks about it, do you get...

- I don't quite understand what you mean.

I remember Sofia and Gunnar's dad.

- Aksel.

- One time, when me and Sofia were attending a camp, -

- begynte han snakke om at fossiler

stammer fra syndefloden og snn.

Yes, you didn't say much,

but you finished a bit abruptly.

Marthe's parents are like that too ...

We met Marthe at the mall.

Was it last week?

- She says hi.

- That's nice.

They are very nice people.

But they believe that life on earth

began 6000 years ago.

I was visiting them,

and there was this documentary ...

That's enough, Thelma.

Don't make fun of people.

I wasn't.

But don't you agree that it's a bit odd?

I'm not comfortable with this kind

of talking.

- What do you mean?

- Knowledge don't make us better than others.

How did life occur where there wasn't any?

Do you know why?


You talk like you know everything.

I don't believe I am.

- Are you sad?

- Yes, a little.

Would you like to sit down?

What is it?

Sorry, dad.

I don't know what's going on with me.

Sometimes I think

that I'm better than others.

And I know that I'm not,

but it just happens.

I'm glad you're acknowledging it.

Is that all?

When I see other girls with

friends and boyfriends, I think they're -

- uglier than me, says stupid things,

and I don't understand why they are ...

I see that there's some new friends

on your Facebook page.

What is it?

I'm talking to a few people before the lectures,

but that's all there is to it.

It seems like everyone but me knows

someone already.

But they have to get to know you..

You're so great.
