Mikkel (17) lives a good life with his mother in Oslo. Here he has heaps of friends and spends most of his day on a skateboard. When his mum gets a new job, Mikkel has to move to a small village and start all over. In his new home of Voss, a small place on the west coast, all that counts is snowboarding. To be accepted by the new kids, he has to climb the snowy mountains and practice. When he falls in love with the girlfriend of the local snowboard champion and school tyrant, a long and fearful journey towards the big tournament begins – the short version: Karate Kid Norwegian style.
