Set in 1958 when famine strikes the Inuit of Canada's central Arctic, the film is the dramatic story of one woman's extraordinary courage, a people's resilience and a government's misjudgment. The film is about an Inuit woman, Kikkik, who killed a man in self-defense and was forced to abandon two of her five children during a desperate trek across the tundra. She stood trial for murder and criminal negligence and was acquitted. The film is an account of Kikkik's ordeal, told by her daughter Elisapee, as she puts together the set of events that put an end to all nomadic life among Canada's Inuit.
