Cityboy Niilas (12) is sent to his mother in Lapland. The only one succeeding in making contact with him is his new sister Suna (11). She takes him on a journey in the magical woods where shy Niilas turns into a wild cloudboy.
The 12-year-old city boy Niilas lives with his dad. He hardly knows his Swedish mom Katarina. Niilas has to travel against his will during the summer vacation to his mother in Lapland. There in the far north his mother and her new family live among the reindeer herders. During the holidays, the reindeer migration is in full swing and, of course, Niilas must also lend a hand.
Despite the warm welcome from his mother and her new family, Niilas reacts very reluctantly. The only one who understands him is his new half-sister Sunnà. He is gradually discovering his roots, thanks to her. They prove stronger than he could ever have imagined. Against all odds, Niilas is experiencing the most adventurous summer of his life.
