Far North

Saiva lives under a curse. Together with her daughter she must live far from civilisation where she believes they will be safe. She is the only survivor after her reindeer herd was slaughtered by a troop stray soldiers. After the massacre she mislead the soldiers to a glacier where they perish. In this way she revenged Ivar, the only man she ever loved.
They struggle to survive on the little they can achieve by hunting. One day she discovers a figure that collapses in the ice. In spite of her fear and doubt, Savia takes care of the man and saves his life. Loki, the refugee, recovers and settles down with the two women for the winter. Saiva and Anja compete for his attention.
