Germany 2013, HD, 26 min.

Emma and her friends Ronje and Benjamin live in Gjesvær, a small village on the arctic island Magerøya. Their parents work as fishermen in family businesses. Winters are long in Gjesvær, in May there can still occur heavy snow storms.

There are no cinemas or clubs in the remote village next to the North Cape.

What is life like in such a place, when you are 14?
