A teenage girl is taken from her home and family and sent to a state school where indigenous students are converted into acceptable members of Swedish society. This coming-of-age tale of an indigenous Sami girl, played by the expressive Lene Cecilia Sparrok, examines systemic discrimination in Sweden in the 1930s. Sameblod received the Guldbagge Award for Best Screenplay.
