Soof is reaching 40 and has everything she has ever wanted: three children, a small catering business, a sweet husband Kasper and a lovely home. Until she starts asking herself, “is this all there is?” The catering business won’t take off, her children take up all her time, and she can’t count on Kasper, because he is spending all his energy in his work. When Soof meets the handsome Jim, a famous choreographer, at a dinner they immediately have a connection. For a moment she is noticed for who she is, someone who doesn’t wonder who is taking the kids to hockey, and gives her the feeling that she is special. When their relationship unintentionally gets out of hand and the restaurant construction takes its toll, the question arises if Kasper is still the attractive man she once fell for. The more she tries to take hold of her life, the more it seems to derail.
