Ester belongs to a deeply religious family, and this shapes her entire life. When the relatively rebellious Ragna moves to the village, the pair spend the Faroese summer evenings together. Nothing much happens on the island, so Ester and Ragna spend much of their time dreaming of being elsewhere. That the film is set in the Faroe Islands gives us in turn the chance to be somewhere few of us have experienced.
