Hélène, a 33 year old woman, has been in a happy relationship for many years with Mathieu in Bordeaux. Their lives are turned upside down when Hélène has to face a complicated event in her life. In search of answers, Hélène goes online and comes across the website of a Norwegian blogger under the name of Mister. He is sick and uses his blog like a diary, veering between sincerity and quirky humour. This discovery and the incredible Norwegian landscapes attract Hélène. She decides to contact Mister.
This is the beginning of a decisive encounter; suddenly she feels capable of articulating how she feels. Despite her difficulty in leaving Mathieu in Bordeaux, Hélène follows her instinct for the first time in her life and crosses Europe to Norway, alone, in search of a new path. The spectacular vastness of these spaces and this unusual friendship with Mister do her good. In the heart of those imposing fjords, facing high mountains and under the bright light of the North, Hélène feels like a new breath of fresh air. Mathieu worries about her and travels to Norway to bring Hélène back to Bordeaux.
