Det er deg vi er glad i
Norge / 2012 / 47 min
DIRECTOR:
Torgeir Foss
A powerful and personal story about a man's struggle to return to life.

A Sunday afternoon in 2011 TV2-reporter Torgeir Foss is about to prune the cherry tree in his garden, when suddenly he falls on the concrete below him, and becomes paralyzed from the waist down. Yet, where most people might have seen nothing but obstacles, Foss senses an opportunity: awoken the coma, unable to speak or move, he realizes that this is his best chance to portray the health care system: from the patient bed. DET ER DEG VI ER GLAD I is a deeply personal documentary, which simultaneously discusses Norway’s health system and tells the story of a family disrupted.
