Thinking Time tells the story of two young women who are in the same predicament, although they are divided by several generations: young Nina is infatuated with a Roma street musician and Nina's grandmother, Ruth, remembers her love for a Nazi officer during German occupied Norway in 1942. Distance and the allure of strangers can exert a special fascination, but to really engage it takes courage and self-confidence. As Nina and Ruth, two strong, young women, remove the distance and the strangers start to become familiar, they both have to make decisions that will change their lives.
