Norsk filminstitutt

A film that deals with taboos that have bothered indigenous women for generations. Sexual abuse is not only an indigenous phenomenon; it is universal and relates to all of us. Silence has been a survival strategy, but the young women Marion and Ida speaking up in this film have experienced that silence will not benefit anybody.
