In a snowy small town in the north of Norway, new neighbors change the life of determinedly happy Kaja in this offbeat comedy replete with infidelity, moose meat, church choirs, board games, blow-jobs, over-consumption of alcohol and embarrassing showdowns. Kaja, who grew up an orphan, tells herself that family is the most important thing in the world. She remains an eternal optimist in spite of marriage to sour-tempered Eirik, a man who is always going off hunting with the boys and who refuses to have sex with her anymore. But things look up when a seemingly perfect golden couple from the big city moves in next door. Kaja must struggle to keep her emotions in check. Not only do these successful, beautiful, exciting people sing in a choir; they have also adopted a child – from Ethiopia! These new neighbors open a new world to Kaja, with consequences for everyone involved. And when Christmas comes around, it becomes evident that nothing will ever be the same – even if Kaja tries her very best. Winner: World Cinema Grand Jury Prize, Sundance Film Festival.
