Synopsis

In Greenland's capital city, sixteen year-old Inuk lives a troubled life with his chaotic family. After pulling the halffrozen boy out of an abandoned car, the social services send Inuk north, to a nurturing children's home on a tiny island in the middle of the silent arctic sea ice. Shortly after arriving, Inuk meets Ikuma, a local polar bear hunter, who has his own share of problems. Overcome by self-doubt and a haunted past, his extraordinary hunting skills are mysteriously disappearing. When Inuk, the boy from the city, joins the elder Ikuma, the last great hunter of the north, on an epic dogsled journey, they face much more than the bitter cold and fragile sea-ice. The most difficult part of the journey will be the one they must make within themselves—as they both learn they have a valiant past and a hopeful future. [subtitles]
