Sixteen-year-old Oliver grows up in Norway and spends all his time with his cousin Bendik, who is also his best friend. Oliver’s life seems carefree, but within
twenty-four hours of his successful debut as goalkeeper for the first team, all kinds of things start happening. To his parents, to Bendik – and to Oliver himself.

How do you keep it together when everything in your life is suddenly turned upside down?
And when you yourself turn out to be a very different person than you thought you were?
