Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this offbeat comedy from Norway, Pa (Kjell Stormoen) and Mo (Juni Dahr) are a pair of brothers who live in the small, remote home where they were born. While they have their differences, the two have learned to live in a certain peace, until Pa receives word that a brief fling he had while in the Army many years ago resulted in the birth of a son. While the child's mother has cared for the boy herself since his birth, she's fallen ill and needs someone else to look after him. Konrad (Leif Andree) has grown to adulthood but possesses the mind of a child; what's more, Konrad is obsessed with birds, and he has a huge collection of eggs and sometimes imagines himself to be a bird as well. While Pa is willing to face up to his responsibilities and Mo grudgingly agrees to help, the presence of a new and rather unusual third party in their small world takes more than a little getting used to for both of them.
