Twenty-something single mother Mina is seriously at a loose end. She wants to be an actress but blows every audition. She seems uninterested in, and incapable of pursuing, any other career. At the same time, she is in a casual relationship with an already taken and painfully self-absorbed man. A chance meeting with a Swedish filmmaker opens up new possibilities, but looming over everything is the one constant in Mina’s life: her mother’s disapproval — a disapproval so deep and so gargantuan it is brought about Mina’s relentlessly self-destructive behaviour, which has apparently made her entire family outcasts in Norway’s expatriate Pakistani community.
