Father of Four and the Vikings

There is a crisis in the ever-so-communal family. Young Mie and Ole are squabbling with each other because they wouldn’t want to share a room. 19-year-old Sis, on the other hand, is dead tired of keeping the house tidy and orderly. In the midst of the drama, Dad tries to understand and figure everything out. The youngest of the family Per is left alone to mourn the situation. On Per's birthday, Uncle Anders comes to visit and, seeing the situation, decides to sign up the whole lot for family therapy. Therapy is a week-long camp where they live like Vikings without contact with the outside world. Bodil the Elephant, an important toy for the family, is taken along. In a therapy exercise, the father has to give up Bodil, after which the mishaps have no end as the family tries to save the dear stuffed animal.

A comedic story about a slightly odd family which ends up coping with their crises in Viking style.
