The Faroe Islands in the North Atlantic are a Danish dependency and for generations, young people have gone to Denmark to complete their studies. When they return for the summer, there is a tradition to put on a satirical theatrical revue. Through following the preparation and performance of the revue at a time of severe economic crisis, this film reveals what young Faroese feel about their identity and their relationship to Denmark.
