Everything appears normal in the small Norwegian town of Skudeneshavn, with its white wooden houses from the 1800's and its friendly locals.
But cycling along the beach road is Lauritz, an eleven year old boy en route to treat himself to an ice cream at The World's Smallest Café. The best ice cream for miles around.
Peddles spinning, wheels skidding, he rides his beloved bike like a pro through majestic woods and narrow roads to get to the café.
Before sunset he will have lost something valuable, but perhaps gained something more precious.
