Description: With her uncommonly gentle, understated slice-of-life drama Kissed by Winter (AKA Vinterkyss), director and co-writer Sara Johnsen observes the intersection of several troubled lives in a Norwegian small town. As physician Anika Hallin recovers from the culture shock of a transplant from the big city of Oslo to this new rural community, she must also grapple with the memories of the calamity that her estranged husband forced her to endure; meanwhile, snow-plow driver Kaj (Kristoffer Joner) contends with his wife's abandonment of him - after he just recently finished construction of an expensive house entirely for her sake. In a third substory, two married Iranian immigrants (Mina Azarian and Michalis Koutsogiannakis) learn that their missing son, Darjosh (Jade Francis Haj) has turned up dead on the side of the road with strange punctures on the bottoms of his feet. As the mystery of this death lingers, each character suffers through his or her own deeply personal, emotional crisis and grapples with the need to take responsibility for the young man's tragic end.~ Nathan Southern, All Movie Guide
