Synopsis: 

After coming out of a really bad depression, former pro ski champion Jomar Henriksen now works as a course setter on the slopes. But he does not take his job seriously and he spends most of his time smoking, drinking and messing around. When an old pal visits him, he sees an opportunity to leave his miserable life behind him and start over. Jomar’s friend tells him that he has a son who lives in the northern part of the country. During his journey up North, Jomar discovers tanks, dangerous tunnels, empty houses with fridges full of food, strange ways to get drunk, while realizing that oddly enough, Sami is at the end of his rope. But will Jomar go all the way and find his own child?
