For ruggedly attractive, 35-year-old carpenter Malik, life in Greenland’s small capital Nuuk is routinely uneventful – when he’s not working and chatting to casual acquaintances, he’s mostly larking about with his cousin Mikael and rotund buddy Carsten – hunting, drinking in the bar and playing billiards. Malik’s humdrum existence is turned upside down, however, when he is diagnosed with a life-threatening disease, and he has to decide whether to leave for Denmark to receive medical care, or stay in Nuuk to be with his family and friends – and with the girl who might be The One.
