A new film by Ulla Boje Rasmussen, well-known for her documentary films which have focused on the Faroe Islands, the North Atlantic community with 50,000 citizens and 18 islands - a country under Danish sovereignty for over 600 years. In her latest film Boje Rasmussen documents the political shuffling as the Faroese government begins their negotiations with Denmark to pave the way for their "road to independence". A Faroese delegation, arriving on Danish soil, is met by the prime minister, a man unwilling to see himself as the person responsible for a breakdown of the national realm. A political drama is unveiled as the delegation encounters more difficulties than anticipated. Today, the question of independence is still on the agenda - and the Faroese themselves are divided.
