« The book man » is both man and phenomena. He solves a Rubik´s cube in 34 seconds and reads a book in less than an hour. His self-built, labyrintic book shop in the small Norwegian town of Volda is getting denser and denser, as his collection of paper books grows. « The book man » is an experimental documentary, with elements of animation and psychedelic soundscapes, where we stay for a full week with the book man in his shop. Monday to Sunday – day by day, boredom builds up to extreme heights as words come together and worlds fall apart.
