Bendik is 9 years old, and he is very fond of his father. There is just one problem, Bendik's dad drinks too much. When his father drinks, Bendik feels that he acts like a clown that no one likes. Bendik can't stand his dad’s drinking.

In "Clown", the filmmaker has used memories from his own childhood to tell a story of a family that pretends that everything is fine and that the picture is perfect. In the film you also meet children who talk about what they would have done if they had had a mom or a dad who drank too much.
