Facing the birth of his first child, 35 year old Henrik, is under pressure to relinquish his own childlike behaviour and finally become a responsible adult. But is maturity something you can rush into? Henrik is used to high-school buddies that party like they were still in their 20‘s. His mother cares for him like he is still a child. And he is in a relationship that’s based on goofing around. Now, Tone is pregnant and Henrik has to take a serious job, move into a conform duplex, calm down the partying, and start behaving like a father to be – like an adult. The Almost Man is a humorous drama that explores the feeling of moving on in life and how you can lose yourself in trying to please the expectations of the surroundings
