When the only woman reletive in their lives dies, Milja starts to think about their biological mother who the sisters have never met. Milja begins obsessively investigate her mothers backgrounds. Could her mother have the answer, why Milja is like she se is?
The thought of meeting mother feels yet impossible to Milja. And the fact that mother lives a thousand kilometres away in Lapland doesn’t help.

In the midst of distressing family life and teenage years struggles Milja succeeds in persuading the sisters to go and meet their mother up north.
During the trip the girls meet people with different backgrounds. They realize how much they already have even without their mother.

Because of this the girls realize who they really are. They are certainly not like their mother.
