Lars lives a solitary life working as a security guard at a train yard in Oslo. One day after finishing his shift, Lars gets a call and learns that his estranged father has passed away. Now, he has to decide on what to do with the last remaining remnant of the man he’d rather forget. A strange sense of sadness and hope that lingers in the Nordic nature sets the tone of the story.
