Village at the End of the World

Village at the End of the World

Lars is the only teenager in town who, in a community of hunters doesn't want to hunt. Niaqornat in North West Greenland has a population of 59, if the population falls below 50 then the village will lose its Danish subsidies and there is a danger of the entire village being relocated to the nearest town. Whilst the rest of the community pull together to try and re-open the fish factory, Lars begins to plan his escape.
