Following a nervous breakdown, former skiing ace Jomar Henriksen finds a job as a piste patroller. He begins to overlook his duties as an attendant, spending most of his time smoking, drinking and lazing. Then one day an old friend turns up and all of a sudden he sees a fresh opportunity to put this life behind him and start afresh. The friend tells Jomar that he is the father of a child living in the north of the country. On his long journey north Jomar comes across tanks, dangerous tunnels, a mysteriously tethered Sami, full fridges in empty houses and unusual ways of getting drunk … and, in the end, maybe even his own child.
