_Synopsis

Hytte (The Cabin) is a 75-minute feature film that questions the quest for identity in a hyper-globalized society. The film explores 9 months in the life of Luc, a divorced man and father of seven-year old Mira. In the middle of preparing his apartment to have Mira live with him, Luc escapes to Svalbard, an archipelago near the North Pole where he improvises a holiday. Stumbling drunk out of an Arctic Oktoberfest Luc meets Mike, a stranger who lives in an isolated cabin in the Arctic desert. Mike mysteriously abandons Luc in mid conversation. Intrigued, Luc decides to find Mike. Along the way, he meets Ingrid, a young Norwegian teacher with whom he builds a connection. Missing his flight home Luc decides to stay with Ingrid and start a new life on the island. Luc rushes into the footsteps of the tourist who remains elusive and volatile, Luc hunts a shadow, his own possibly.
