For over 20 years, a 115-year-old Sanatorium in western Norway has been left to decay. Four young people decide to move into the building with a vision to make it into a space for working artists. Despite their enthusiasm, it turns out to be a much harder task than anticipated. Is their project not only about saving the house, but needing a new start for themselves? THE SANATORIUM is a film about a unique project driven by the willpower of youth, and a sense of “otherness”.
