Trapper Lars is living on Spitsbergen, an island far north of Norway. His life consists mainly of hunting and fishing for survival. Being in peace with his environment, the sudden arrival of Ellen, a student, is quite a disturbing event. Lars, who permitted her to visit and live with him during the dark and cold winter in the first place, soon is challenged by her attraction and also by her strict will only to gain experience. The relation between the two unalike persons - who don't even have a language in common - is stressed from the beginning, and when Ragnar, another trapper, comes over, the situation is about to change.

This is a show about the experiences of a young girl as she embarked on an adventure of spending 4 months of dark winter alone with a trapper.
What I liked about the show is the acute portrayal of the the young girl's (Ellen) relationship for the trapper as her emotions grow from an initial sense of disgust and even contempt at his naivety and gradually matures as she realises and accepts the man behind the bumblingness.
The portrayal of the trapper, Lars, as someone socially inept may not be new, but his lack of survival skills is both endearing and unexpected.
Ellen finally realises that for most of her life, she had been trying to live up to expectations of being special, as she had always been treated so. The problem of success has always been trying to maintain it.
I liked the show so much that I watched it twice, something that I have not done for a long time.
