Two siblings, one crime. One long-buried secret. 17-year-old Ellen never wanted a holiday.
What is there to do in a mining town in the northernmost corner of the country, with no one but her brother Simon - a boy with Asperger's and obsessed with detective stories - for company? Nothing, until they stumble upon a horrifying crime scene that brings them into a generations-long conflict between the townspeople and the native Sami. When the police dismiss Simon's findings, he decides to track down the perpetrator himself. Ellen reluctantly helps, drawn in by a link between the crime and the siblings' own past.
What started off as a tedious holiday soon escalates into a dangerous journey through hatred, lies and self-discovery that makes Ellen question not only the relationship to her parents, but also her own identity.
