Mina (Amrita Acharia) is a young single mother living in Oslo with her 6-year-old son, Felix. She is Norwegian – Pakistani and has a troubled relationship with her family. Mina is constantly looking for love with different men, but none of them show any hope of lasting. Then Mina meets Jesper (Ola Rapace), a Swedish film director and they fall head over heals in love.
