On a normal day Jan Olav meets the orange girl. She is standing in a tram, loaded with a bag of oranges. He falls in love at once. But as quickly as the stranger turned up, so suddenly the fairylike girl disappears again. The beautiful girl appears like a fantastic phenomenon and disappears again, until Jan Olav is no longer sure whether she actually exists. For long months, Jan Olav looks for the young woman everywhere, he follows her mysterious traces, the red coat and the oranges that have turned his usual world into something miraculous. Georg has never quite got over his father's death ten years ago. Now the 15-year-old receives letters, which his father had written to his son. At first, Georg does not want to read them, but then he opens them anyway. It is a farewell letter and a love story. His father tells him of the persistent and imaginative search for the orange girl – it's the story of a great love. During a winter journey to an infinitely wide snow landscape Georg submerges himself in his father’s life – until the journey into the past becomes a vision for his own future. Georg discovers that the world of wonders often begins right on one’s own doorstep. Deeply affected by all these events the young man begins to see the world in a different light.
