A Nordic Western that takes place in the untamed Lapland tundra. The protagonist is young miner Rupi, who hopes to scrape together enough money through excavating the tundra to forever shake the suffocating dust of the mining village from his feet. But the work has come to a halt because Rupi's reindeer herder father refuses to sell his land. What is more, the manipulative mine owner nicknamed the Fisherman has his eye on Rupi's friend's wife, a woman who Rupi is also secretly in love with. Now that life in the mining village is becoming more dangerous by the day, Rupi must decide where and to whom he belongs.

The film was selected as the Estonian entry for the Best Foreign Feature Film at the 93rd Academy Awards.
