Pertter Primus is a fourth generation mountain resort hotel owner; hes born and raised far up in the Norwegian mountains and lives there with his wife and daughter. Primus is a bit more racist than most, and is hopeless with money. Since the tourists havent been coming to the mountains any more, he decides to go into the business of running a state-funded asylum reception center. But its not going to be as easy as he first expected. Because along with 50 unruly refugees, most of them Muslims and Arabic-speakers, comes Abedi, an endlessly annoying optimist from Congo. He annoys the hell out of Primus, but eventually Abedi changes Primuss life completely.
And in the end he has to make a choice: his friend or the money.
