“We all want to love and be loved”, that is what life is all about, according to Alex Norgay.

That is also why over the course of the past year he secretly made this video for his mother, Eva, in hopes of helping her find a boyfriend. She has been on a few dates over the past couple years but nothing quite panned out and she is still looking for the right man. Alex explains that she deserves love and his aim is to help her find it. He recorded the moment he showed her his video, which she knew nothing about prior to that time.

It begins with a general overview about her, that she was born in the Czech Republic in 1946 and now lives in Norway, and is a Cancer, which makes her around 68 years young. With this information in mind it then delves into what she likes. The list includes a variety of activities and interests including tennis, swimming, nature, skiing, cross country skiing, yoga, relaxing in the sun, art, beer, bike riding, traveling, fooling around, dancing, hanging out with her best friend Eva, and taking care of her sister, mother, family, and son.

The clips of her doing all these activities is where the viewer really gets a sense of what Eva is all about. She seems very graceful, active, physically fit, and natural. Her personality shines through, especially when she is shown hula hooping, dancing, and laughing with her friends and family. Her sense of humor is also very apparent in the shot of her riding her bike. When she took a spill off it she jumped right back up on her feet and laughed it off. She clearly loves life and doesn’t take anything too seriously.

When Alex’s film ends we get to see Eva’s reaction to it. She asks him what he wants to do with it and he tells her he wants to spread the word and upload it to YouTube. She seems happy and kinda shocked, asking incredulously and endearingly “on internet?”. So if anyone out there watching has someone in mind who would make a great match for Eva, get in touch. Send a nice letter with a video or picture, and if it catches her eye, someone will be in touch!
