An antidepressive off–road movie “North” is about 30–year–old Jomar's journeys through frigid, arctic landscapes and reconnects with his life. Downhearted ex–skiing ace Jomar works at an isolated ski park near Trondheim and wishes he could return to live at the cozy psychiatric hospital nearby. After belatedly learning that he fathered a son with a former girlfriend who now lives in the Far North, Jomar decides to pay a visit. Ultimately, he comes to understand that life is about not giving up.
