One of the biggest audience and critical successes of these times in Scandinavia
Leaving the snow and cold of Scandinavia for the warm, sandy beaches of Thailand in the dead of winter – for a handful of Swedes, it's more than a dream, more than a holiday. It's the beginning of a life-changing adventure, a fresh start, a new life. For the long-suffering wife of an abusive, mean-spirited ex-pilot, it's a chance to be treated with dignity and to taste the joys of freedom… For a corpulent, lonely engineer who always dreamed of a loving family with several children, it's the absurd plan of marrying a young Thai woman and starting a family with her… And for an overambitious single-mother architect recovering from a stroke, it's a possibility to relive the past with her two daughters on an island called Happiness… As their lives move deftly from one jolting event to another, they realize that while it may be impossible to completely leave their Nordic lives behind, it is possible – with humor, humanity and generosity – to transcend their limits and reach satisfying moments of self-fulfillment and love on their journey.
