Saving the Fucking Planet

Saving the Fucking Planet

Facing depopulation, a small town in the north of Norway gets an attractive offer from an influential investor wanting to reopen the old copper mine, which was once the town’s biggest employer. A reopening could potentially provide hundreds of jobs, but it would also mean that toxic waste will be dumped in the fiord.

The area in which the mine will open also serves as a breeding ground for large reindeer stocks and is vital for the indigenous Sami community. Residents in and around the small town are divided, but a love story still develops.
