A stunning and educational look at the Sami culture through the eyes of siblings Lise and Lasse who live at the very top of Norway. At times mischievous and at others quite courageous, the story follows their unique yearly rhythm: spending the long winter days and polar nights playing in the snow with their reindeer and sleeping in tents with their family and the warmer summer days at school in the village with other children. Inspired directly by a remarkable journey taken by Ingri and Edgar Parin d-Aulaire to northern Europe where they spent time living among the Sami, this intricate story offers a special glimpse into Norway as it once was.
