Sanna and I bought this for you.

It's from your home place.

I've got nothing to do with those people.

- Do you understand what she's singing?

- I don't like it.

It's so screamy.

And they steal, and lie.

And they're nagging.

We're here.

It's your sister. We're going in.

- We're not staying for long.

- No, alright.

Her father's passing-

and the loss of her sister

was a painful period in her life.

Joik became her way

of surviving, find strength...

A way of escaping-

and come home.

Home for the summer graze,-

that Njenna loved so much.

- It's for grandma.

- Grandma.

Grandma, please.


My condolances.

Why didn't you come...

I don't understand.

Every year she insisted on

branding your calves.

- No, I don't understand.

- She kept your herd.

- Yes, you do.

- I'm leaving now.

What a nice gkti.

- It's really nice.

- Thank you.

- Yes, it's very nice.

- It's so beautiful.

Look, grandma. Isn't it beautiful?

Which she of course never had.

We're going home now.

We can stay with Jon-Olov

and your sister's family.

Most of them are going straigth

to the calf branding.

- That would be so much fun for Sanna...

- No, we're going home, Olle.

I'm too tired to drive now.

We're leaving tomorrow.

No, I'm taking my handbag.

Where are you going?

- I'm checking in at the hotel.

- What?

- I'll be fine on my own.

- Come on, mom.



- Where are you from?

- From Smland.

- Are you here on vacation?

- Yes. No, I'm retired now.

- Teacher.

- Ok.

- The cleaners are back.

- Is that them?

When we were up on the mountain yesterday -

a bunch of them made a lot of noise.

That's not alright when you've paid

for peace and quiet.

- Yes, they're quite noisy.

- Yes, they are.

It's annoying that they think they

can ride motocross everywhere.

- This is a nature reserve.

- Yes, it is.

I though the Sami where people of nature.

Mom? Christina?

I know you're in there.

We're invited to the calf branding.

There's a helicopter leaving soon.

Mom, could you please come with us?

So that I'm not standing there

like some clueless moron.


I love you.

Come on.

Drink, row, read.

Drink, row, read.

I don't know anything further.

Shall I talk to grandma?

No, screw it. Let's go.



Hold him.

He's yours now.

You should be on your way

a long time ago.


Speak Sami.

It's not long until Christmas.

Your sister will be there too.

This branding knife belonged to your father.

He would've wanted

you to have it.

You can tell that your mother

can't take it anymore.

- It won't take long.

- And then you'll be back?


Go over to your big sister.

You won't make it a single day

at boarding school with such behaviour.

I don't wanna go.

Close your eyes.

Close them.

Then imagine

Norra Storfjllet.

- How does it sound?

- I can't remember

If you can joik it,

it feels like home.

So joik.

Njenna is crying aboard the boat

Njenna is crying aboard the boat

Do not joik at the school.

Hurry up.

One more time.

Look. Tiny Lapp and Big Lapp.

Good day!

- F*cking Lapps.

- They've got to deal with the smell.

Ask anyone.

You get a 100 to shoot one.


- I don't know the text..

- Quiet.

- A tiny, poor child...

- Louder and in proper Swedish.

A tiny, poor child I am,

but happy nevertheless.

My father...


- She can tell that I don't know it.

- Quiet.

I don't wanna hear any Sami.

We're gonna speak a language

anyone understands.



A tiny, poor child I am,

but happy nevertheless.

I know my good Lord cares
