November of 1999. Trond Sander is 67 years old. After the death of his wife, he has retired from Oslo to a small village in the east of Norway. The millennium is coming to an end and with it, it seems, also Tronds life. One winter night he suddenly recognizes his neighbour Lars, an old acquaintance from his youth. The encounter brings back memories of 1948. Amidst the breathtaking mountain and river landscape between Norway and Sweden, Hans Petter Moland stages a drama about love, loss and disappointment, about lifelong traumas and feelings of guilt. Based on Per Petterson's award-winning novel, the film also addresses the Norwegian Nazi past. The oscillation between collaboration and resistance has also influenced private decisions and is an indelible part of Trond’s childhood memories.
