Mu Luodda is an interactive narrative documentary game about traversing the metaphorical barren landscape of Ultima Thule - the land of ice where extremes reign. The mythical beauty and pressure the southern explorers only dreamed about, Sami people experience in their daily lives - as an indigenous people torn between the traditional way of life in their home land Sapmi in the north and the pull of the cities in the south, trying to preserve their culture while chasing their own dreams.
