    • Synopsis
    • The feature film Returning Home (2015) begins as Einar (played by Ingar Helge Gimle) returns to his family in Norway after serving as an officer in Afghanistan for nearly a year. Absent a clear father figure, the eldest brother Oscar (Aasmund Hoeg) has assumed responsibility for little brother Fredrik (Fredrik Grondahl) and the home, as their mother Anna (Lia Boysen) is bedridden most of the time.

      The homecoming does not turn out as expected, as the father seems distant upon seeing his family again. He goes out hunting the morning after and doesn't return as promised that evening. After spending the entire night waiting, the boys decide to walk up the mountain, hoping to find their father. The search itself becomes a test of manhood and the brothers' relationship, one from which they will return forever changed.
