63 min.DK/DocumentaryPortrait films

Nuka is a young man with a mission; he has a heartfelt desire to be the forerunner of the new, open-minded and more progressive Greenland.
Nuka loves his country and wants to do something for it and create a space for freedom, even though he is likely to be meet by strong opposition, perhaps even hate by some. This is a story about a young man who fronts an exciting revolution. Nuka has a beautiful mind and you can only sympathize with him and his cause once you get to know him.
