Mikal enjoys a rewarding career as a helicopter pilot in Texas. The problem is, he and his wife Amy live in Florida, and for work, Mikal regularly spends two weeks of every month away from home. The grueling commute wasn't a problem when their daughter Isabella was an infant, but now she's five, and having a part time dad is taking its toll. Knowing that things have to change, the family decides to move to Mikal's native Norway, where the commute to his new job will be reasonable, and family roots will fill the gaps in between. But with extremely limited housing options in the tiny town of Aurland, and Mikal's job still two hours away in the city of Bergen, the family will have to decide if the roots they're recasting are better set in a tiny town, or the big city.
