A short film based on dance that tells its story through the performance by two young Sámi ballerinas. The film is about the nature in Sámi, the youth and the dance. It also looks at deeper questions about the ownership of Sámi land and the Sámi’s rights in today’s Finland, where the contradiction between nature and the modern lifestyle is blurred with humor.
