Always Last embarks on an adventurous marathon through the ice cold and mythic landscape of Lappland. But she soon discovers that the run is not going to be a straight line between start and finish. Grotesque events, unforeseen temptations and cheerful absurdities keep driving her off the course as she lags further and further behind. But in the end all the diversions and unpredictable encounters become the reward for her efforts as she crosses the finishing line. Finally, it is not about winning or losing. The risk is losing yourself.
