Faded punker Otto gets a gig in Haugesund, and gets his dads old Opel Diplomat from the scrap yard. In Telemark, however, he makes a wrong turn and meets Farida Svalastog, who makes a living finding Americans' Norwegian roots (or those who pretend to be). Then strange things start to happen, and Otto gets stuck on the labyrinthine roads of Telemark. Among other things, he is chased by amcar enthusiasts who are looking for the engine of the Opel Diplomat, which houses a highly sought after Chevrolet V8.
