A group of people from various backgrounds regularly meets in Oslo’s Schous plass to play table tennis. Through the sport, they make friends and create a distinctive community.

About the Film

Weather permitting, it’s always busy around the popular ping pong tables. People like to stop, chat, and either watch other players or play themselves. Their shared passion for the sport overcomes language barriers and social differences. The diverse community acts as a family, experiencing everyday events together as well as key milestones in life. But because some of its members have liberal views about drug and alcohol consumption, the city threatens to remove the tables. This film about togetherness raises questions as to whether public spaces are truly open to all without any differences.
