Storyline

Twelve-year-old city boy Niilas has been living with his father for as long as he can remember and barely knows his Swedish mother. This summer, Niilas has to travel to Lapland - much against his will - where his mother and her new family live amongst the Sami, an indigenous reindeer-herding people. Despite a warm welcome, Niilas retreats inwards. The only one who can get through to him is his half-sister Sunnà. The reindeer migration is fully underway and Niilas has to lend a helping hand. When a reindeer goes missing, Niilas joins in the search. Gradually he discovers his roots, which prove to be stronger than he ever could have imagined. Against all odds, Niilas experiences the most adventurous summer of his life.

About the director

Somehow, Meikeminne Clinckspoor (1984) decided really young that she wanted to make children's movies. After a theater education in Amsterdam, she started a film education (2004) at the Filmschool KASK, where she graduated in 2009 with her short film for children De Wensboom. Beside her work as a director, Meikeminne also works as a professional childrens’s coach on filmsets, both features and short films. Meikeminne is also writing on several shorts for children, and developing several television series for both youngsters and toddlers.
