Ida is a woman in her prime. A successful architect, she travels to the family cottage to celebrate her mother’s 65th birthday. There she is joined by her sister, her sister’s husband and his daughter from a previous marriage. Her mother and her new partner soon arrive for a pleasant family weekend. But Ida has something to tell. At the age of 40 and without a steady partner, the desire for motherhood is beginning to flow and she is considering freezing her eggs. When her sister gives her the news that she is expecting a child, the protagonist cannot help but feel her world shake. Awarded the Young Critics’ Prize and nominated for the Norwegian Booksellers’ Prize, Adults is an original tale of a dysfunctional modern family and the burden of infertility.
