I travel to Tulsa, Oklahoma to search for my first love, the singer Taylor Hanson. Nineteen years have passed since his band Hanson made it big with the song MMMBop and I dreamed of a life together with Taylor. During the travel I write letters to a today-married-father-of-five who chose to settle down in a midsized city. Driven by my attempt to get in contact with Taylor the letters create a story that starts in an area of terraced houses outside of Västerås and continues in a similar area in Tulsa.
