Kaisa’s nuclear family was blasted to bits years ago. Her mother landed in Aberdeen, her father in Oslo, Kaisa in London. Now, Kaisa has to transport her father back to Scotland. Strictly business – not pleasure. But her cargo proves more of a problem than she ever imagined….
Champagne is flowing and Kaisa is the life of the party. Her London law firm has just given her a promotion and she is loving the attention given a young, sensuous employee in a big, mostly male, firm. Finallythings seem to be going her way.
The next morning Kaisa is woken by a telephone call from her mother, Helen, whom she’s tried to forget. Next to her lies a man who’s name she can’t remember. Mom has a proposition. Find Tomas, her father, and bring him to Aberdeen for rehab – a new program where Tomas has accepted the role of ”guinea pig”. Kaisa has not seen Tomas since she left him in Oslo ten years ago. She accepts the job, knowing full well it’s going to be an arduous task.
Tomas lives up to her expectations. He can’t remember when he last talked to Helen and he’s certainly not interested in any rehab program. Kaisa is neither shocked nor deterred. With the skills of someone who’s grown up with an addict, she cajoles, threatens and drags Tomas in the general direction of Aberdeen. When Clive appears, they are both forced to re-examine their relationship and the real reason for their trip.
”I never wanted a family or children”, Kaisa confides to hermother. ”The risk was too great I’d end up with a daughter like me. I didn’t think I could love anyone or any man. Now I’m not so sure.” –NFI
