Plot summary

Heaven on Earth is an independent sequel to the Academy Award nominated As It Is in Heaven from 2004. It is set in the same remote village, in the barren and cold northern parts of Sweden. Lena is forced to give birth at home due to a snowstorm, only assisted by the intoxicated village vicar Stig. This creates a bond between them and she accepts to help him bring people to the church as a cantor. Dancing and music make people come to life and inspire joy, but they also lead to fear and jealousy. Lena makes new friends but she also makes enemies.
