Norwegian filmmaker Bard Rossevold’s feature film tells of a young man searching for his father, who disappeared years earlier at the same time a comet passed close to earth. As he aims to solve the ongoing puzzle of the disappearance, which has mystified him since he was a little boy, Gustav forms a connection with a local hairdresser who joins in his endeavours. This offbeat, beguiling film is a blend of romance and sci-fi mystery.
