A film version of the Odin Teatret production "KAOSMOS - The Ritual of the Door". A village in the heart of Europe; doors like walls and walls like doors. Every Spring the villagers perform "The Ritual of the Door". The theme of the performance is a common one in mythology and folklore - a man, or a woman, asks to be admitted to the Realm of Happiness, or Salvation. In "The Ritual of the Door" a doorkeeper asks the protagonist to wait. The waiting lasts a lifetime, representing both the richness and waste of existence. Between 1993 and 1997 Kaosmos was performed in 21 countries in Europe, North America and Latin America. A co-production between Peter Sykes Associates, Statens Filmcentral and Odin Teatret Film. Supported by Kulturfonden. Director: Peter Sykes, in Danish.
