In this feature documentary, Swiss citizen Yves Delaunay seeks to understand how the Inuit are coping with the mutation of the Arctic as it is caught in the violent sway of climate change. In Sachs Harbour, an Inuit village on the fringes of the Earth, he discovers a small community attached to its land, conscious of the importance of its traditions and culture, which struggles daily to face the challenges of modernity by way of carving out a place within it.

    an insightful look into an Inuit community, that reminds us of the importance of coming to grips with the reality of climate change. the Arctic landscape and those "humble with regards to nature" elegantly communicate that the true foundation for human survival is in the transcendence of the unfettered worship of the bottom line. evolving a form of eco-socialism, that honours the first peoples' respect for nature and includes the wisdom of women and children, is humanity's true hope.
