“Being a teenager can be quite lonely,” and it's certainly a tad desolate for bright 18-year-old Lars in Niaqornat, a remote Inuit hamlet without internet cafes, restaurants and hotels.

The small Greenland community is crumbling as there's little work, families are moving out – by helicopter – and the local school has only eight pupils left. However, the fishing village have a bold plan to re-open the local fish-processing factory. A beautifully photographed documentary and a quietly seething comment on climate change.
