Sami Blood is an eye-opening film offering a look at some of the cultural challenges faced by the Sami people indigenous to northern Europe. As a flashback of an elderly woman reluctantly returning to her homeland, Sami Blood is a coming-of-age story. Set in 1930s Sweden, we see her as a teenage girl attending a state school. There she is subjected to degrading race biology examinations and ridiculed for her heritage, making her turn from her culture and define a new identity far from home and family.
