Norsk filminstitutt

At Schous plass in Oslo, people from totally different back grounds meet daily to play outdoor table tennis. Their motivation the get together and play table tennis varies: some is in it to win, some like to socialize and drink beers, some are lonely and need a place to hang out. What they have in common is that all of them like to play table tennis. When people from the municipality office want to move the tables away from Schous plass, the players join their forces to protect their meeting place.
