The tundra. Lapland. A mining village made of piled up, dilapidated construction trailers and mobile homes becomes the meeting point for the hatred between reindeer herders and miners.

Rupi, a tough young miner, estranged from his family of reindeer herders, is quietly in love with his friend’s wife Riita, who has also caught the eye of the owner of the mine. The two men are set on a collusion course, but can Rupi be a match to someone so powerful ?
