Lars is the only teenager in Niaqornat in North West Greenland. Whilst the rest of the community pull together to try and re-open the fish-factory, Lars begins to plan his escape. Niaqornat in North West Greenland has a population of 59, if the population falls below 50 then the village loses its Danish subsidies and there is a danger of the entire village being relocated to the nearest town. Whilst the rest of the community pull together to try and re-open the fish-factory, Lars begins to plan his escape. Like all villages, Niaqornat has its supporters and detractors amongst the local populace. For some it is paradise, they can’t imagine living anywhere else, for others it’s the last place on earth they want to be. For most Niaqornat is simply home. – Guth Gafa International Documentary Film Festival 2013
