The inhabitants of the stunning Faroe Islands pride themselves on their self-sustainability and respectful affinity with their environment. As director Benjamin Huguet films, in sometimes shocking scenes, they are used to raising and hunting their own food. But when whaling protesters descend on the island, they have to question the future of their traditions.
