Mariam is in her mid-20s and lives a messy life in Oslo. One day her estranged sister calls with a shocking message: They have to bury their father for a second time.

A few years earlier – right after her father’s passing – Mariam showed up stoned at his funeral and had a laughing fit at the worst possible time. Out of shame, she moved from the small Norwegian town to Oslo. Now she must return for the first time since she ran away.
