The year is 1944, it is World War II and Norway is occupied by the Nazis. Two Samis help the Norwegian resistance movement with a sabotage in the border areas between northern Sweden and Norway, but the bridge they want to blow up is guarded by a soldier in German uniform. A Sami in German uniform that they recognize.
The two Samis are now in a hurry to prevent the attack. But the bomb is already in place, and the mystery of the Sami in German uniform grows.
An action drama about 3 Samis that kills a Norwegian resistance woman and is discovered by a German officer. A reasonably reality-based short film about the war in the north, Operation Sepals, which was helped by the reindeer-hearding Sami people as of the Nazis, was seen as a peaceful people without nationality.
