In Greenland, a lot of young people are forced to move far away from home to get an educa-tion. They leave behind family, friends, and familiar surroundings. This article draws on a filmed fieldwork conducted in one of the Greenlandic towns offering upper secondary educa-tion and focuses on how young people deal with having to fend for themselves from a rather early age. While some enjoy life far away from their parents, others suffer severe homesick-ness; their families are, physically, far away but can be reached via telephone or FaceTime. The young people are heading out into the world and taking an educational step forward. Their par-ents are left with a feeling of having to let their children go and a wish to help and support from afar.
The article is an analyze of asynchrone experience of living with the triangel: Education, mobili-ty and domestication (family, home, homing). And it is an effort to achieve an (asynchrone) text moving between film and different kinds of analyzes
