P.O. leaves his lonely life in Sweden to visit his son Jacob in Denmark. It's been 13 years since they last met. 13 years is a long time ¿ the only news he's had from Jacob all these years are brief messages scribbled on post cards sent from all over the world: he's travelling; he's met a Swedish girl; they got married ¿ and then suddenly nothing ... until now: an invitation to his 30th birthday at a restaurant in Copenhagen. Why does Jacob suddenly want to see his father? Why does the Swedish wife speak Danish? And why, despite all the best intentions, are they not able to connect? With so much hope and need for understanding and love this reunion between father and son can only go wrong ¿
