Norsk filminstitutt

What happens when a seemingly perfect couple fails to live up to the expectations of society and their social surroundings? On a trip to the east, how far are they willing to go in order to fit in back home in the west?  

Inspired by Ibsen's play, A Doll´s House, the film also explores if we have changed our views and expectations of Nora in today's globalized society.
