The 1960s brought massive changes to Greenland. Its scattered population was moved to larger cities. A people of hunters and fishermen became factory labourers. Danish construction workers arrived by the thousands - drawn by the economical advantages of working on Denmark's final frontier. Greenland lacked a strong voice. But that was just about to change.
"The Story of Sume" is a unique account of the four young students who released Greenland's very first rock album in 1973. And went on to lead their people's first uprising against the Danish colonial powers. The film centres on Sume's two charismatic front men - and the conflicting ambitions that would eventually tear them apart. And it tells a classic coming-of-age story about the world's biggest island overcoming an even bigger inferiority complex.
