A cinematic documentary film about dreams, lives on hold, and the human capacity to rise again.

When an American industrial giant decides to build their next plant in a remote town off the west coast of Greenland, the massive billion-dollar project is welcomed with excitement. An opportunity for a town in decline to turn things around, and even the first major step towards the long-awaited Greenlandic independence. But years go by without any signs of the plant, and Maniitsoq fall into a state of waiting.

A therapist, a young woman working at the fish factory, and the town’s aluminium coordinator are the main protagonists in this portrait of a small society yearning for change and progress that ultimately comes from an unexpected source.
