Winter is coming … but will it ever end?

The dream of an independent Greenland was revived in 2006 when the American aluminum company Alcoa announced its plans to build its next billion dollar aluminum plant in the small isolated village of Maniitsoq. The industry can help make Greenland financially independent of Denmark and is met with enthusiasm, but years go by without anything happening. The future has been postponed, but for how long? WINTER’S YEARNING is a documentary about dreams, lives that are put on hold and a people’s ability to rise again after defeat.
