Located way above the polar circle, the Swedish mining town Kiruna was built on a great iron ore deposit and created a significant income for the Swedish government. However, due to the mining, the city has started to collapse. In order to save the industry, the city council have decided to move the town 3 km to the east and to turn a potential disaster into a great opportunity - making the New Kiruna even a better place. But is it even possible to plan an ideal world? On the backdrop of a moving city, the citizens of the New Kiruna are fighting their own battles, pursuing their personal search for identity, values and a greater future. The film is a portrait of a utopian and dystopian town as well as a hard-hitting reflection of today’s society.
