Markus and Lukas live in an old townhouse in the middle of Oslo. The river runs close to their home. A paradise in the big city. And then there’s Smøla, where their mother grew up and where summer vacations are spent. We watch them grow up, and their dreams and expectations being shaped. Markus loves soccer, and wants to be a professional. Lukas is more of a philosopher asking questions about the world, about himself, and what it’s all is about. Sometimes, what they want and need is the direct opposite of being a loving son or brother.
