A portrait of Madsen, who makes his living by running a hotel for refugees. Mr. Madsen is a Dane, who has seen great possibilities in the number of refugees arriving to Denmark. He has bought an old hotel, where refugees from all over the world are guests. He presents his own highly individual views on the way mankind behaves and how the world is put together. Madsen has nothing against the foreigners, but sometimes he thinks they act weird. Madsen was brought up properly and his moral standards are high - unlike those of his guests, he sometimes thinks. As he says: “I understand and talk more and better with my little dog, Smutti, who Madsen chose as his assistant director. As long as Madsen is not able to visit the world, the world must come to him. Madsen’s Hotel is part of You Have to be Round to Live in a Globe.
