Where Man Returns
Hvor man vender tilbake
Where Man Returns portrays the relationship between man and nature and tries to provide a meditative and close insight into a life very close to the elements. We experience a man that has chosen to live his life differently. A life in solitude, in this unfriendly ice cold environment, at the tip of Norway, on the border to Russia. As winter becomes summer, and then winter again.
We follow the life of 75 year old Steinar, who lives here with his dog. We follow them in their process of harvesting what nature here can provide, and we can sense how both his physical and mental state changes according to the seasons. It is a rough and tiresome life. Alone in this wilderness, the man finds his company in nature itself, the animals and his only friend; his dog.
