They say football is a game of inches. Big deal. Curling comes down to millimetres, and the pressure to toss your rocks with pinpoint perfection can push even champions to the breaking point.

Truls Paulsen (Norwegian comedy star Atle Antonsen) learned that the hard way. He’s spent the last decade in a mental institution after his obsessive-compulsive tendencies led to too many outbursts. Freshly released and ordered to avoid his old habits, Paulsen discovers his former coach needs a lung transplant to live. Despite doctor's orders, there's only one thing to do: get the old team back together and hurry hard to get that new lung. Backed by a colourful assortment of Nordic funnymen, Antonsen and co-writer Ole Endresen take aim at the world of competitive curling in this kitschy underdog comedy, and land it right on the button.
