Eatnameamet – Our Silent Struggle reveals multiple colonial acts done by the State of Finland towards the Sámi people and reveals the government's attitude towards the Sámi. During the film the audience gets an understanding that all the injustices are part of a bigger question about the ownership of the land. Piece by piece the film unravels the big tangle of questions starting from the seemingly superficial cultural appropriation and ending into the moments which will decide the fate of the entire people.
