This was an unexpected gem that I picked off the shelf. Beautifully filmed, the story touches some of the struggles of northern life. There is drama and there is suspense, but the story focuses on the personal journey of characters wrestling with isolation, friendships, loyalties, responsibilities, and mistakes.

I just could not get passed the stupidity of anger and killing for no reason.
There may be more to this film but I am personally rather disgusted by the brutality of the human race.

This movie shows that kids, even in the land of the midnight sun, do things that are just as stupid as anywhere else. It's a sad story of deception and lies.
