Synopsis

A 14-year-old girl belonging to the Sami people, a Scandinavian ethnic minority, is subjected to racism and eugenic scrutiny in the 1930s when she is removed from her family and sent to a state-run school that aims to re-educate her into Swedish culture. She must soon choose between new academic opportunities or staying true to her cultural identity.

Critics

open_quote A beautiful, haunting film, anchored by a startlingly accomplished lead performance. It has the feeling of a distant memory - one that is neither entirely pleasant nor painful, but persistent. close_quote Washington Post
