Winter Morning (Vetrarmorgun) is a story about two girls in their early teens whose friendship has led them to a turning point in their lives.

Dealing with love, friendship and identity, the film brings up a universal subject about teenagers struggling with stigmas. Told through the unique atmosphere of a small town community of the Faroe Islands, an isolated archipelago in the middle of the North Atlantic ocean.

Born in 1986 and raised in Skopun in the Faroe Islands, Sakaris Stórá took up studies at the Nordland College of Art and Film in Norway in 2007. Upon graduation, he returned to the Faroe Islands to pursue his goal as a screenwriter and director of giving the Faroese language and culture a voice in the film world.

In 2014, his short film Winter Morning (Vetrarmorgun), won the Grand Prize at the Generation program at the Berlin International Film Festival.
