Ten-year-old Gabriel loves singing, and has one desire: to sing in the local choir. Riding kick-sleds through the snowy landscape of Northern Norway, this community choir is known for its generosity towards those seeking refuge in the village. Gabriel’s father unexpectedly gets into a fight with a black man who was forced to flee his home. This ignites Gabriel’s sense of justice, and compels him to stand up for what is right.
