When Freja’s mother, Clementine, goes to a clinic in Switzerland for treatment, Freja is sent to live with mum’s friend, Tobias, whom she has never met. Rather than say her tears are because she misses her mother, Freja says she wants to see Rome, so off they go, a girl, a huge dog and an eccentric writer packed onto his motorbike.
