As many coastal communities in Northern Norway are threatened by decline and depopulation, are the village Bleik experiencing prosperity; there is competition for house plots and waiting lists at the school. What is it with Bleik? Through following different activities in this community with strong storytelling and voluntary work traditions, the film shows how a fishing community can stand up against centralization and structuring through broad mobilization.
