Sámi Boddu

Sámi Moment

## ## ## ##

On a small hill in the wintry tundra, two reindeer herders arrive by snowmobile to contemplate the wide horizon. Impassive, they share a cigarette and hardly any words, which is all they need to form a tight bond. This story uses dry humor to denote a distinctive way of connecting, where the white surroundings fill the silence and less is more.
