Peter’s father is a vicar, his mother an artisan, and both are equally and profoundly devout. The family lives on the fictional island of Finø, where people of all faiths coexist peacefully. Yet nothing is at it seems. When Peter’s parents suddenly go missing, Peter and his siblings fear the worst - has their parents’ relentless quest to boost church attendance finally put them in danger?

    Hvad nu hvis vi kunne se et menneskes bevidsthed foran os som en bygning? Hvad nu hvis vi kunne træde ind i den bygning? Efter vennen Simons selvmordsforsøg opsøger Peter en klinik syd for Århus der måske kan hjælpe Simon. Klinikken forsker i den dybe kontakt mellem mennesker og har udviklet en epokegørende form for hjerneskanning. Det viser sig at Peter og klinikkens leder, Lisa Skærsgaard, har været venner i en børnehave i Valby. Men efter et trafikuheld har hun mistet hukommelsen. Gennem deres møder vender hendes erindring langsomt tilbage. Sammen genoplever de hvordan de allerede som børn fandt veje til at rejse ind i bevidstheden.
