Not a man in sight

Marja 78, is fucking pissed off at all power doors and square toilets in the new apartment she and her wife Bodil moves into. It needs a sex change operation ...

Mette 35, stands with her wife Stina faced with the question: Will our children have no father?

Martine 24, wants people to think about her as an ordinary masculine man.

The director Mette Aakerholm Gardells personal film about three generations of lesbians, how they find their places and roles in relationships in a world where there is no man.

No man in sight is a close and personal narrative that start in something complicated and how complex we all are. It's about feeling lonely and outside, perhaps more than others? About wanting to fit in and to be a bit special.

In this film, the ladies control the ship and the nature, and the sea are men in this difficult voyage we call life - where there is no man in sight.
