STEKENJOKK AND THE GUARDIANS OF THE EGGS
Every year during June, police officer Mimmi and nature guard Håkan patrol Sweden’s windiest place, the valley of Stekenjokk. Eggs thieves’ ravages the area where rare bird eggs are laid during the breeding season. Thousands of eggs have been stolen over the years and sold between collectors and threatened several species to be extinct, a crime that has now been unfolded. But this period, spring never seems to arrive at Stekenjokk and the birds have their toughest year so far. The place is incredibly important for the birds, but also for Håkan who lives for the nature and wildlife. A film about the place, the conversations that appear along the winding road that crosses the valley and the strange situation where the birds are constantly threatened and where everyone is a suspect.
