"I live in Norway, the land of the polar night. I have a cabin in the mountains in Finse," comments journalist Sigri Sandburg. "I pack my bag and head up there. To seek out natural darkness, knowledge, and the night sky—and to see how long I dare stay. Because, paradoxically, I am afraid of the dark, and that fear is all-consuming." Here Sandberg explores our intimate relationship with the dark: why we are scared of it, why we need it, and why the ever-encroaching light is actually damaging our well-being. Meditating on the cultural, psychological and scientific meaning of darkness, Sandberg also tests the limits of her own fear.
