Synopsis: 

The Faroe Islands: a remote group of wildly beautiful islands, battered by the ever­changing weather patterns of the North Atlantic. For centuries the Faroese have lived proudly off the natural resources that surround them – a pact between mankind and the wilderness based on balance and self­sustainability. However, a clash with new opposing ecological visions could change the face of the archipelago forever.
