The emotionally broken Sámis finally get back their ancestral heritage that has been taken away from them. The film director West faces the collective pains and starts to break the outside image of the Sámis, not only for herself, but for the wellbeing of the whole nation.
The film is set at a turning point in the museum world. While the Sámis have to redetermine their relationship to identity, the national museums have to deal with their colonialistic history. West follows the different stages of the repatriation processes. The Finnish National Museum’s Sámi collection is returning home, but the holy drums are stuck in museums around Europe. West takes the audience behind the scenes of the museum world where the debate of the othering and cultural inequality is causing inevitable change.
