Directed by Louise FriedbergI. Inspired by the memoir "With the Best Intentions" written by Tine Bryld, this film portrays the story of Gert, a nurse who is charged with the care of 16 Greenlandic children, who have just returned from Denmark after a year-long cultural “modeling.” Intended to set an example for their fellow Greenlandic natives, the children have been taken from their families and are now returning their homeland. An initial believer in the experiment, Gert must deal with the serious challenges that the children face as they return home, the decreasing support of the Danish government and her rising doubts about the intentions of the project.
