Nine-year-old Vega and her wild little sister Billie go with their father on a two-day hike through the Norwegian woods. The long-awaited trip is filled with fun and play, but there is an accident and their father falls into a hole, twisting his ankle. Unable to move, he instructs Vega and Billie to go and get help. The girls feel lost at first, but after a few magical forest encounters, they accept the mission and face their fears. Along the way, they discover their superpowers and find strength in each other.
