Give Us Our Skeletons

Synopsis

Locked up in the Anatomical Institute in Oslo, two skeletons are all that is left of Mons Somby and Aslak Hetta, two Sámi men who were hanged for murder in 1854. The descendants and relatives of Mons Somby and Askak Hetta want them back so that they can give them a decent burial. The question is: are they simple criminals or national heroes?
