Det brukar gå bra / It usually ends well

Imagine, there's a human being tucked away in every human body. And a cat in every cat! It Usually Ends Well is a story about a beloved cat, and its over-protective owner, about love and loss, animals and humans.


An extraordinary story about life the way it is, and what happens when it doesn't turn out as expected. About the eternal and existential questions of
life and death. The film is also a journey into the creative mind of the author Beate Grimsrud and her work with the novel The Leakage of Sleep.
