On the family estate outside Oslo at the turn of the nineteenth century, a man paces up and down an upstairs room. This is John Gabriel Borkman, once a famous entrepreneur, now reduced to penury and self-doubt following a prison sentence for embezzlement. His wife, her twin sister and his son are all entrapped in the claustrophobic atmosphere of the household—one which is bound for explosion.
