The 1930s. Sidner's mother Solveig dies in a very unfortunate bicycle accident involving some cows. Sidner, his sister and his father Aron move to Sunne to work at a hotel. Aron tries hard to leave the sweet memories of his wife behind him but that isn't made easier by the fact that he always meets her ghost. Aron gets himself a pen friend, a young girl in New Zealand called Tessa. He starts to dream of beginning a new life on the other side of the world. Will his dreams come true and can they help him to cure his regret over the death of his wife?Written by
To me this film was an excellent portrayal of a man cast into a new world of sadness by the death of his beloved wife.The portrayal of a depressed and very lonely man by Aron Nordensson alone made the film worthwhile. Based on the novel by respected Swedish Poet and Novelist Göran Tunströms this is not your average action filled drama but a very convincing story far removed from the all too clichéd predictable dramas we see so much of these days. Tunström's story of both father and son longing for some kind of happiness or contentment in their lives is very poignant. A gem of a movie in every aspect.
