In this eloquent coming-of-age drama set in the 1930s, Elle Marja, 14, is a reindeer-herding Sami girl. Exposed to racial shaming at her boarding school, where indigenous students are converted into acceptable members of Swedish society, she starts dreaming of another life. After sneaking off to a dance and experiencing respect without question, she has to decide if leaving her family and disavowing her Sámi heritage will give her the life she is seeking.
