The film follows an aspiring painter named Frances (Jenny Slate) from New York City to the farthest reaches of Arctic Norway, for an assignment she hopes will invigorate her work and expand her horizons. In a remote village, she meets a fellow New Yorker (Alex Sharp), who has come in search of a proper Viking funeral, only to find that the Chief (Zach Galifianakis) is just a re-enactor from Cincinnati. Under a sun that never quite sets, and the high standards of an unforgiving mentor, Frances must navigate between ambition, desire, obligation, and risk in order to move forward.
