Three women stumble blindly in an almost desperate search for themselves and happiness. A shy literature student falls in love with a much older writer. A raging performance artist becomes pregnant during her break through. A woman believes she’s dying and wants to contact the son she once gave up for adoption. Directed by Yngvild Sve Flikke (Norway, 2015).

Special thanks to the Norwegian Film Institute and Motlys Films.
