For decades, Gacalo and Mugdi have lived in Oslo, where they've led a peaceful life and raised two children. But when their son kills himself in a suicide attack in Somalia, the couple reluctantly offer their daughter-in-law and teenage grandchildren a home. On arrival, Waliya and her daughter cloak themselves more deeply in religion, while her son hungers for new freedoms, in a rift that will have life-altering consequences for them all.
