Synopsis
The Pond Inlet Inuit in Nunavut live with the memory of a tragedy: in 1943, 25 people –over half the population of the community – died within the span of a few days. This personal and intimate documentary brings us into homes and lives of Ruth and Elisapie, two survivors of this tragedy. We join them on their journey back to the
ancestral land with their grandchildren, and see their efforts to strengthen the younger generation’s connection to place and culture, hoping to ground them in their history and traditions as they face the challenges of the future.
