In the middle of Bredgades heavy traffic lies a small bookstore with an air of timelessness about it. Here Sven Damsholt takes care of his private oasis for searching souls.
Despite his 95 years, he still goes to the store every day and he still translates spiritual and religious writings. Sven's own spiritual quest has been passionate. His curiosity has sometimes led him far and wide, which has threatened to destroy his marriage to swedish Martha and the family life with their six children. Sven wants to come to terms with his life choices - unpretentious and free of dogma - and he talks about the insights a long life lived among the wisdom of books has brought him.
