This film traces Finn's attempts to heal the wounds his father's suicide caused his entire family. Twelve years ago, Håkan hanged himself in their summer cottage. Finn talks to his mother and sister, he tries to understand his own thoughts and emotions by reminiscing about the days right after his father's death. He wonders whether the image he has of his dad has become his own creation – whether they are one and the same person–. The resemblance is striking between Finn and the man in the old family pictures. Many tears flow, not least Finns own, but humor and laughter are never far away.
