Camilla and her grandfather wander through the streets of Kristiansand, through her grandfather's childhood, reminiscing in the streets he walked as a child. He is at the end of his life; she is soon to be in the middle of hers. Grandfather tells of growing up in the same town as her but in very different times, and through their time spent together, through his memories and stories, an unexpected friendship emerges.
