Elle Marja, a Sámi girl, is taken to a Swedish school together with her sister in the 1930s. But to attain a better life, she needs to become someone else and to turn her back to her native culture. The film examines the core of racism, describing in a heart-breaking way the assimilation of the Sámi into the main population in the early 1900s.
