Tongue Cutters w/Turf Salmon Smoke
In this charming and whimsical coming of age story, nine-year-old Ylva dreams of following in her family’s footsteps and earning money by working a season in the fisheries of northern Norway. There she meets 10-year-old Tobias, a highly skilled and ambitious cod tongue cutter who takes her under his wing and shows her the art. Over time, they discover they have much in common, and as Tobias’ big dreams inspire Ylva, their bond grows. A beautiful friendship is formed while knee-deep in fish heads.
