Dorte is twenty and adrift, pretending to study literature at Copenhagen University. In reality she is riding the trains and clocking up random encounters in her new home by the railway tracks. She remembers her ex, Per - the first boyfriend she tells us about, and the first she leaves - as she enters a new world of transient relationships, random sexual experiences and awkward attempts to write.
