Two very different women, a decision that changes everything forever, and the vastness of nature.
Spring. Cherry blossoms in full bloom. It could be so idyllic. But Anna Albinger, who lives in a small town at the foot of the Swabian Alps, becomes gravely ill. Suddenly she’s overcome by the sense that it may be too late for some things. Because she‘s harbouring a big secret. With a heavy heart, she writes a long letter that she wants her niece, Frederike, to take to Lapland. Frederike, recently divorced and looking for a fresh start, is less than enthusiastic. Very reluctantly, she leaves her sick aunt behind, and sets off for the desolate North in search of the addressee of Anna’s letter. But Petter Svakko seems to have disappeared. Alone in the alpine world of Lapland, Frederike realises that you can sometimes be in the wrong place and yet find just what you need.
