Ilulissaiat is the name of a small community living in a desolate frozen are in the north of Greenland. The town is chiefly inhabited by hunters and fishermen and, because of the high rate of criminality among its inhabitants, there are also five policemen and a magistrate. Naalu Jerimiassen, a mother of four chidren, who has killed her husband, and Jens Reimer, who has beaten his wife, are both sent to trial. The film reveals an original and unique law system adopted in Greenland; in fact, throughout the island, there is an unusual indulgent attitude towards crime, both by the police and by the judges. Rehabilitation and indulgence are part of the local policy. The documentary follows the life two prisoners and their families until the verdict is given in the small curtroom of the local Law Court.
