Lappland: foundling Pirita grows up in the care of reindeer herders next to the most beautiful woman in the settlement. Neglected by her husband, she turns to the Shaman in her need. Soon after this a white reindeer haunts the people there. And the former cannot be killed by bullets, but only with cold iron, for ”here things are happening that cannot be understood by a man from the south”. The white bright snow landscapes in the course of the film become immersed in deeper and deeper shadows. They indicate Pirita`s growing despair. For anyone who forms an dark alliance with the gods of our ancestors, there is no return. German premiere in 4K restoration.
