A short documentary about Big Verner who has lived in Vesterbro, Copenhagen, for the last 40 years.

Sixteen years ago he opened “Store Verner’s mini antikvariat”, but with the consumers decreasing interest in tangible reading material he runs the bookstore with a loss.

Now he’s retiring, and his early retirement fund won’t allow him to run the shop without decreasing his retirement fund. Therefore he is forced to close the store, which has been so dear to him for so many years.
