The film is inspired by the contemporary life of the indigenous people inhabiting the European arctic region, the Sámi, widely known as Lapp. After twenty years of researching and photographing the European arctic and its indigenous inhabitants, the Greek award-winning film director Dimitra Zirou, begins to film an art documentary inspired by this distant land and its people. Two parallel stories, are gradually unfolding the everyday life of two very different persons: 87year - old Sara, one of the few remaining keepers of Sámi oral tradition and Mihka, a 7 year-old Sámi boy, both living in Guovdageaidnu - Kautokeino, a remote small town in the middle of the Norwegian Arctic tundra. The film is observing their life during an one-year’s cycle, through the changing of the arctic seasons as they shift from the long winter’s darkness to the summer’s never-setting light.
