Sun 21st July 2019
Twelve-year-old city boy Niilas has been
living with his father for as long as he can
remember and barely knows his Swedish
mother. This summer, Niilas has to travel
to Lapland – much against his will –
where his mother and her new family
live amongst the Sami, an indigenous
reindeer-herding people. Despite a warm
welcome, Niilas retreats inwards. The
only one who can get through to him is his
half-sister Sunnà.

The reindeer migration is fully underway
and Niilas has to lend a helping hand.
When a reindeer goes missing, Niilas
joins in the search, and an impressive
moose keeps crossing his path at the
most unexpected moments. Gradually
he discovers his roots, which prove to
be stronger than he ever could have
imagined.

Against all odds, Niilas experiences the
most adventurous summer of his life.
