    • Synopsis
    • It could have been a perfectly normal day, if he had missed that streetcar... But Jan Olav just catches that streetcar, on a cold autumn day in Oslo. And on that exact streetcar, on that exact day, there she is. A beautiful girl in a red coat, holding a large bag of oranges in her arms. She smiles, and as their eyes meet she drops the bag and the oranges roll all over the streetcar. She gets off at the next stop, but Jan Olav cannot forget her. Who is she, what if he never sees her again? The quest for the girl with the oranges leads him through winter-cold Oslo and all the way to colourful Seville, where the air is warm and the trees are full of oranges. Twenty years later Georg receives a letter from his father, Jan Olav, about a mysterious girl he calls the Orange Girl. But what can a father who is no longer alive have to tell his 16-year-old son? Georg starts reading the letter on his way to ski in the Norwegian mountains. On this ski trip he meets Stella. Through his father’s letter and a magical encounter under the starry Easter sky, Georg realizes that he and his father have something in common – the dream of true love. Does Georg dare take the chance?
