40 year old Elling has been sheltered by his mother for all of his life. So much so, that he is sent to a state institution when she passes away. There he meets Kjell, a man who has a lot in common with Elling and fancies himself a ladies man. Once they are released out into the world with their own state funded apartment, they will find that living in the real world isn't as hard as they thought it would be and realize what they've been missing all these years.
