A trilogy of experimental films of Sámi perspectives from past, present and future activist movements. From the '70s, the herstory of Sámi women and youth rallying against the government voicing concerns about water rights. To contemporary issues around mining and capitalism encroaching on reindeer herds. To youth singing an activist-type anthem about the strength and resilience of the Sámi.
