SYNOPSIS

A young anthropologist, Zdenka, moves with her family to Svalbard, Norway, to study how life is changing in polar regions. After falling in love with her new home, she discovers that more than icebergs and permafrost are vanishing in the Arctic. She has to work out to what extent she can get involved in the local community that she only originally intended to observe. 

NOTE

[Jinna Lee, Programmer​]

In Svalbard, Norway, a young anthropologist from the Czech Republic, Zdenka, interviews people. Viewers could realize that the cold climate and rugged landscapes are more than mere backdrops; they mirror the contrasts and gaps between the natives and migrants.
