Kaisa, the younger sister of actor and filmmaker Suvi West, is a Sámi, a Christian deacon and an out lesbian. But, despite the visceral homophobia she experiences from her native community in northern Finland, she is keen to remain there in order to stand up to - and hopefully even affect - its prevailing conservatism. An intimate and moving exploration of sisterhood, queerness and the search for acceptance from competing personal identities.
