In this film we get to know two young schoolgirls that live in Ohcejohka in Finland. Life is peaceful in Ohcejohka. At least until the year 2020. One of the girls felt like the world was turned upside down when she heard the news about the coronavirus. Because of the virus her school had to close down, and the pupils were attending home school for two months. 

She wasn't able to play with her friends, and she couldn't visit her grandmother.

  • Did you like distance learning from home when the schools closed down?
  • What in your life changed during lockdown?


One of the girls in the film is wondering what kids from other places did during lockdown.

Many families stockpiled food in the spring of 2020. The family we meet in the film always stockpile food for the winter during the summer and fall.

The girls in the film feel that they almost learn more at home than at school.
