Although Øyvind, a professional dancer, has reached the age of twenty-six, he hardly has any memories of his father. But now he's setting off to visit him. His dad wants to reestablish contact, and the young man is excited about spending the weekend together after all this time. When he arrives at the cosy, secluded little farmhouse, he is surprised to see that his father isn't alone; he lives there with his girlfriend Karin. The time they have given themselves to renew their relationship passes slowly, during which the kind-hearted Karin appears more interested in Øyvind than his own father. The older man doesn't seem able to bring himself to tell his son the reason for contacting him after so many years. A film about fragile moments filled with emotions that are sometimes hard to describe in words.
