Jussi, seems lost. A young Saami man in his twenties, he has watched his family sell their reindeer herd against his wishes. Having lived in Lapland his entire life he resents his brother’s decision to move south, abandoning the traditional Saami ways. When his brother comes home for a visit, Jussi is confronted once more with the choices now facing the community and his family. What will he decide? A quirky, bittersweet drama from Lapland, sure to resonate with Canadian audiences.
