Miya, a 30-something single mom, auditions for non-binary rocker Jonny’s band. Sparks fly between the two, but their flirting is interrupted by a robbery. Jonny’s bulldog Judy Garland and Miya’s comfortable Dansko clogs are stolen. The duo takes off on a wild chase across the city, trying to recover their precious belongings. Little do they know, Jonny’s roommate and bandmate Norena is weaving them into a love spell.

This simple story of falling in love is wrapped up in questions of time, fate, and the supernatural. It is inspired by true Queer Norwegian histories, Queer Vikings, and the story of Odinn’s quest for the mead of poetry. As in Odinn’s quest, we encounter twin robbers, angry giants, a little bit of magic, and a whole lot of love.
