Life is hard for the miners in Lapland; only alcohol and the occasional prostitute offer solace in their existence. Young miner Rupi hopes to scrape together enough money to leave the dusty mining village for good. But work in the mine has come to a standstill because Rupi's father, a reindeer herder, refuses to sell his land. Rupi is torn between loyalty to the mine owner, with whose help he sells illegal pills, and his family. And there is also a woman involved, as both Rupi and the mine owner have their eye on the beautiful Riita.
