    • Synopsis
    • Assembled from personal experiences, collected testimonies and local stories, the film presents a subjective portrait of the contentious Norwegian-Russian borderland. Home to the indigenous Sami, it is a region where palpable climate shifts raise dreams of new economic prosperity and where remnants of past wars set the stage for new adversities.
