Hidden between a row of fishermen gutting fish, standing on a floor full of blood and intestines, we find nine-year-old Tobias in front of a big box filled with cod heads. With an almost frightening pace, he cuts the tongues from the heads, and puts them on a big nail.


Many other children work as cod tongue cutters, and Tobias’ girlfriend Ylva and her friend will spend their winter up North to learn the art of cod tongue cutting. The girls are also eager to attend the World Championship of cod tongue cutting, where the child cutting the most tongues in two minutes becomes the new World Champion.
