Storyline

Director Liselotte Wajstedt's documentary is a road movie into Samiland. Armed in a Kolt and with a summer's course in the lingo she is determined to take her place among the people she belongs to. In spite of being Sami herself, she has stood outside the Sami community, bereft of the language and other attributes of the culture. It's an exciting trip, filled with expectations of new and fulfilling experiences, but the hovering fear of rejection and alienation lurks around the corner. This strong story is portrayed through humorous documentary narration, imaginative animation and musical editing. How much a Sami can you be living in the city and without rein deers? Will she be accepted in Sameland? Written by Anna G Magnusdottir
