Ranged across several generations, the story begins with a wealthy merchant, Lind, and his wife travelling in the coldest depths of winter to christen their baby daughter. Attacked by wolves, they lose the baby, which is found by the Lapp Jaampa and subsequently raised by a rich reindeer herder.

Schnéevoigt bjuder på ett friskt, kraftfullt och episkt ödemarksdrama i storslagen natur. Fotot, de dramatiska scenerna med jagande vargar etc; allt sitter ganska perfekt. Skådespelartruppen är också väl utvald; den som lyser allra starkast är utan tvivel Mona Mårtenson i rollen som Laila. Det var också väldigt roligt se den stora sångerskan Cally Monrad i sin enda filmroll.
I really think Schneevoight should be more known here in the states when it comes to silent Scandinavian directors. This film was awesome! it was beautifully shot and the story line glued me in. I hope to find more of his work because Laila was wonderful.
