Roos visits her mother in Norway yearly, but this time it's different: she brings a bad news. At first, old pain and numerous reproaches keep Roos from sharing anything with her mother. With the help of her half brother and an old love, the two women eventually reconcile and Roos is ready to take her next and inescapable step.
