Well if it isn't Pavia. Hello.

What are you doing here?

Are you here with Jens?

- No.

Did you kayak here?

- Yes.

From Sermilik? That's a long way.

This must be important.

Is it about the fishing boat?

- Yes.

It hasn't arrived yet, but the

schooner will be here today, -

maybe the papers

are in the mail today.

That's alright, Albert. Start

unloading and send up the mail.

Hello.

- Hello.

Eva Nygaard.

- Mariboe. I'm the factor.

I wasn't expecting passengers.

- It was a last minute decision.

How may I help you?

- I'm looking for Dr. Halsoe.

Halsoe, yes. Are you related?

He's my fiance.

He doesn't know I'm here.

All of a sudden, I'm here.

Where's the hospital?

It's at the other end of town.

How about coming home to my wife?

Wouldn't you like some breakfast?

Halsoe's not up yet.

- I'll wake him up then.

Put the suitcases

in the office.

Hello.

Hello, I'm looking for Dr. Halsoe.

I'm Eva Nygaard.

Kirsten Prage. Nice to meet you.

The doctor's busy right now.

Did you have a nice trip?

- Wonderful.

It's so beautiful up here.

Dr. Halsoe's not expecting you.

- No. It's a surprise.

Do you think that's proper?

You're acting so strangely.

What do you mean?

You haven't received his letter.

He wrote to tell you not to come.

Not to come?

Does this concern you?

- Yes.

I'm sorry to tell you,

but Erik and I

Erik? Where is he?

Did he ask you to tell me this?

- He doesn't know you're here.

I had to do this. In my defence,

it happened all at once.

Where is he?

- I'm the woman he needs.

You'll never get him. I didn't

steal him from you. He wanted me.

Let me get out of here.

Lie down again.

Where were you?

Take his temperature.

Where's the record?

Your Eva was here.

Eva? Here?

- She came to surprise you.

Where is she now?

- She hadn't received your letter

I told it like it is, and she left.

Was that really necessary?

You haven't given me enough.

That's only 10 kroner.

Is the factor here?

- No, he's not.

When's the next ship to Denmark?

- They don't sail every day.

There has to be a way home.

- Of course, but

So you've already

found your way down here.

Come on in and have a seat.

Please

I want to go home

as quickly as possible.

I can well understand.

What do you understand?

Let's go home to my wife.

She's very wise.

She always knows what to do.

Do you know

everything about me?

One hears things

in a small community like ours.

Things may look difficult,

but then everything fails into place.

To err is human.

Where is Pavia?

So here you are.

Lovely fish, eh?

Yes. And lots of them.

- So get to it, Pavia.

Here are the papers for the boat.

Ask Jens to help you.

No news about the boat?

Not yet. One has to be patient

here in Greenland.

Do you like my dahlias?

- Very lovely.

I didn't realize

you could grow them here.

Every woman in Greenland

has a greenhouse. It's our vice.

After six months of winter

one can't get enough flowers.

Mrs. Mariboe,

you've been so great, -

but I can't stand it anymore.

I can't keep on waiting here.

Everybody knows about me.

About things, they shouldn't.

I have to get home.

I can't keep imposing on you either.

You're not imposing.

Drink your tea. It's not for your

sake. I always drink tea at 3.30.

Up here good habits are important.

Otherwise, one would succumb

to beards and bad manners.
