Aina wants to get away from it all, but the house of fools is certainly not a peaceful place to be. After throwing herself through a shop window, Aina is taken to the institution Varden for treatment. Reluctantly she joins therapy groups, riding lessons and cleansing conversation with those who wants to help her. At Varden, Aina meets with both anxiety, pain, laughter and mad humour - life in its wide range of shades and colours. Through the eyes of twenty four year old Aina, we meet a crazy group of both patiens and helpers, all together bringing back the spark of life and wish to go on. In the house of fools, Aina learns that sheer madness usually makes a lot of sense!
