Kirsten Bang has travelled all over the world and has written about her experiences in her many books. Her first long journey took her to East Greenland, where she worked as a governess. She stayed there until the Second World War forced her to return home. Sixty years later the now ninety-year-old writer decided to revisit the place and meet the people she wrote about in her first books. The film shows Kirsten Bang's experiences of the incredible changes a small people has undergone in her own lifetime. The truly distinguishing feature of the film, however, is Kirsten Bang. No matter where or when she gets to know people, be it in Ammassalik, Holte or Nepal, to her they are - above - exactly that, people.
