In this outstanding debut feature set in the 1930s, young Elle Marja is forced to leave her reindeer-breeding Sami family to attend boarding school far away from home, a typical practice at that time. In the midst of adolescence, she is as strong-minded as she is rebellious and she knows how to hide her feelings all too well, even from herself. She strives for the approval of her teachers by outshining her classmates in adapting to Swedish culture, which she has been taught is far superior to her own. Yearning to fit into a society that is not truly open to welcoming her people, she suffers discrimination and psychological cruelty. Still, she would rather completely forsake her roots if it helps her to fit in. An insightful commentary on the abuse imposed upon the Sami by official institutions.
