When Mette (Line Arlien Soeborg) and her father (Jesper Klein) are left alone over the Christmas holidays to paint the new nursery because Mette's mother is in the hospital with a difficult pregnancy, the father ends up alone most of the time. The 16-year-old Mette is always off with her friends at the disco or skating, and the father does not mind until he discovers that young Joenne (Carsten Joergensen) has taken some topless photos of Mette and clearly is intending to go further in their relationship. Suddenly the father starts hanging out with Mette and her friends as they practice winter sports together -- and there is hardly anything stranger, or more embarrassing, as far as Mette is concerned. It is clear that father and daughter are heading toward a change in their relationship as both have to adjust to her "growing up."
