At the webpage of Oslo Nye Teater (Oslo New Theatre) the following, among other things, is written about Wilful Disregard:

"We meet the sensible writer Ester Nilsson, who is to lecture on the artist Hugo Rask. From the moment she meets him, her existence is turned upside-down by an all-consuming desire. The love story they initiate is recognisable to anyone who has been in love with a person who hasn't reciprocated the feelings."
