Forêt Shell presents an urban story and its setting in Northern Finland. There used to be a service station along a highway outside a small town, a popular stopping place for travellers and meeting place for the youth in the 1960s-80s. Local people called it “Forest Shell” (Forêt Shell in French). The examination of the urban story and personal memories from the service station of the past as well as historical facts blend into a narrative and myth on the video.
