55 min.DK/Documentary

Norto, Emil and Nuka are three young friends from the former colony of Denmark, Greenland, who now live on the streets of Copenhagen. We get under the skin of their everyday struggle to exist in a city that persistently ignores them and where they must resort to self-destruction as a means of survival. In the film, Norto, Emil and Nuka are confronted by the authorities, by explosions of desperate rage and difficult phone calls with family back home. And yet, in spite of it all, in moments of tenderness within their self-appointed family, a deep desire to belong is revealed.
