Synopsis

It’s the mid 19th century. The men of the indigenous Sami people of northern Norway are succumbing to the lure of alcohol. But strong-willed Elen leads a boycott of the local liquor store, and persuades her fellows to listen to charismatic preacher Laestadius: soon a confrontation is imminent. This story of rebellion is personal to Gaup, whose ancestors were involved: it’s been ten years in the making.

Critics
