Alice hasn't seen her two children in months. After a recent and difficult divorce, her ex-husband keeps them from seeing her, awaiting the final custody verdict in Northern Sweden. When her son calls her in the middle of the night weeping helplessly, Alice takes action. She travels on the night train to the North and in a last desperate attempt to win them over, she abducts the children and venture on an illicit charter trip to the Canary Islands. With the idea that the distance between the frozen Northern Sweden and The Canaries could buy her just enough time to reconnect with her children and possibly change the verdict on the custody case. But before she knows it, she is wanted for kidnapping, and both the authorities and her ex-husband are chasing after her.
