Supernaturally hot mom and dad can't communicate. Dad wants a sailboat, which mom ridicules. Mom is working late on architecture projects more and more. Can they get over their differences? They have two small children and a happy life. The mom looks like no mother you've ever seen. The argument that splits them up doesn't seem serious enough to cause such a decision. We see them stumble back into the dating scene, argue, say bad things about each other, bond over their children, and finally, in the least surprising ending in history, end up one big happy family again. Cue the music and sailboat heading into the sunset.
It's funny and Norwegian. A crowd pleaser. Light and fluffy.
