The idyllic family life set in a beautiful snowy countryside of Norway is shaken after Roos returns home and eventually finds a way to say goodbye.

"A study of denial, played out against the majestic backdrop of nature"

"Extremely warm and poignant."

"Lodeizen and de Brauw shine in roles augmented by a depth of character."

"A unique impression."


Roos visits her mother in Norway every year, but this time it’s different: she brings bad news. At first, old pain and countless reproaches keep her from sharing anything with her mother, but with the help of Roos' half brother and an old love the two women are eventually reconciled and Roos is ready to take her next, irreversible step.
