And a man finds his way

like a migratory bird -

and you can't explain it.

What place comes to mind,

what beauty comes to mind?

What place does your soul desire?

To where does it become attached?

Name that place,

show it to me, go there.

For this young sergeant it's here.

He's on his way to work.

And a man finds his way

like a migratory bird.

And you can't explain it.

But he doesn't yet know that hell

and paradise aren't places -

but states of mind.

They're inside you

if you know where to look.

That is Jouni's cat poro.

That is very interesting poro.

Cat poro. Cat, kissa.

Pyh, sacred animal.

It has a reindeer of its own.


What is it in English or German?

-I don't remember.

Do you speak English?


Jouni, isn't it worth two grand?

-Cat reindeer are priceless.

Two thousand mark, you understand?

Drive card?

And money too.

-This can't be settled with money.

How can it be settled?

-It can't.

Are you sure?

-Yes, I'm sure.

Vornanen, leave it.

Let them go.

You must go now.

His name was

difficult to spell, anyway.

You understand?

You must go now.

Goodbye and trevlig resa.

I'm Karvanaama.

If you don't know me, ask anyone.

This is Vornanen, he's a believer.

Shall I warm the sauna?

In the newcomer's honour.


why don't you show him around?

There's a big crowd here because

of the native people's festival.

The duty officer

woke me after midnight.

Some Eskimo had been thrown

through the bar's window.

I called the police 120 miles away.

They sounded drowsy and

promised to send a patrol.

His fur trousers had protected him.

This is how it is,

the border guard work around here.

I'm getting the hang of it.


What are you doing?

We've been testing these tents.

We're just finishing. Good tents.

The view is great.

-We have different kinds.

Those are tunnel tents,

and over there...


In the spring, we move at night.

During the day, we lie in the sun.

We lay our foam mats on a bare spot

and make some coffee.

But in the autumn it's so dark...

Not that we couldn't...

The brook just keeps on flowing.

That's the Plough. Then up above

those two stars of the Plough -

that's the North Star,

Stella Polaris.

The north is that way,

we're walking south-east.

If it seems to be moving,

a star or a planet -

it doesn't necessarily move,

but we do...

I mean the Earth, Tellus -

is moving all the time

through space, quickly.

When you see a shooting star,

you can make a wish.

But you mustn't tell anyone

or it won't come true.

The wish, I mean.

Are you cold?

-A little.

Take this.


ls this how you live?

-It isn't bad.

Living with the seasons.

Soon the polar night will arrive,

and then there'll be snow and cold.

In the spring, there'll be light and

the sun will start melting the snow.

Think about it, there could be

six feet of snow right here -

and then it'll just disappear.

I've just come here

to the eastern border.

They closed down my previous guard.


Bye bye.

Now she's gone.

Umur. Umur went.

And you don't realise until

someone leaves... has gone -

that you're standing there alone,

with the likes of you.

Like trees, alone.

Hello, thank you very much...


It just sort of slipped...

-There was a reindeer.

We tried to dodge it,

and the sun was in my eyes...

You can't just pull it back...

-No, it'll just slide downhill.

There you go...

-Thank you!

We're on our way to Hmeenlinna.

-Watch out for reindeer!

I have to be at work tomorrow.

Can you give me a ride? I have

some unfinished business back there.

I went to find Umur,
