The Boy and the Mountain is an expedition through Norwegian nature, a conversation between father and son about nature, about traveling outdoors with a backpack and a tent, and abouthow small humanity is faced with nature.
In the summer of 1894 a six-year-old boy is lost under the mountain Styggemann in the area of Skrim. Hundreds of people search for him, but the boy is gone without a trace.
122 years later a father and his six-yearold son go hiking in the same area. Equipped with a tent and a backpack they walk through thick forest and windy mountain planes. The goal: The top of Styggemann.
