Norsk filminstitutt

11-year-old gaming enthusiast Hedvig finds her life turned upside down when she is forced to replace her father as the town’s superhero much earlier than expected.

But Hedvig is no superhero, and the challenges are far greater than her coaching father anticipated. He soon realizes focus must shift to his athletic nephew Adrian instead. Dejected and confused, Hedvig visits her grandmother. As she starts talking about the situation, the grandmother lights up, eagerly responding to her ramblings. An unlikely team emerges, and soon Hedvig is about to fulfill their family legacy without her father’s knowledge.
