When we this fall return to Barrøy, the year is 1946 and Ingrid is going on a quest to find the father of her daughter. Her search will take her from the sea to the mountains and woodlands of Norway, across the border to Sweden and back again. We follow her as she makes her way south, meeting people along the way that in different ways have been affected by the Great War.
