An elderly Inuit couple try to hold on to their traditions in this beautifully cinematic drama.
In an isolated yurt in the northern wilderness, Nanook and Sedna's traditional way of life starts changing, slowly but inevitably. Hunting becomes more and more difficult, the animals around them die inexplicable deaths, and the ice has been melting earlier every year. Chena, who visits them regularly, is their only connection to the outside world – and to their daughter Ága, who left the icy tundra a long time ago due to family feud. When Sedna's health deteriorates, Nanook decides to fulfill her wish, and embarks on a long journey in order to find Ága.
“The screenplay's simplicity is enriched by memorable images whose stillness adds to the overall aura of a period coming to an end.” - Variety
