He stopped at the small harbour towns, cykled to the lighthouses. With him, he had four bicycle bags and a small tent.
Back home in Sweden, he left behind his three children. Three children who a couple of years earlier had lost their mother in cancer.
Today, the children have grown up, but Martin's father has continued to disappear. With the help of three postcards Martin goes on a search for his father. By travelling to the places the postcards were sent from, and to speak to the people whom his father maybe met - maybe then Martin can start to understand his father.
