90 minutes 2018 6.4

28-year-old Anders decides to travel to a small village in Greenland to work as a teacher. His parents oppose his plans because they want him to take over the family farm. But Anders needs to change environment and get new challenges.

Life is tough in the small village - tougher than Anders had imagined. He is not well received by the inhabitants there, and if he hopes to help the families - not least the children - Anders must make an important decision. He must get to know the people who live there and not least their traditions. Only then will a whole new world open up for Anders.
