Description of the content The people of East Greenland inhabit a small string of coastal land at the very edge of the biggest island of the world. Long and hard winters have always shaped daily life here, a life that has gone within a few generations from earth house to modernity, complete with helicopters, satellite TV and alcohol. This documentary shows us East Greenland today, the village in summer and winter, the family between seal hunting and computer games. It lets us experience in clear and poetical scenes normality in an extraordinary world, quietly observing events, faces, gestures that combine to form a portrait that is at the same time strange and strangely familiar. Amongst a sensational and impressive landscape, the most sensational fact, it turns out, is life itself.
