An exploration of the fascinating life of the controversial Arctic anthropologist/explorer, Vilhjalmur Stefansson, this documentary includes the fresh perspective of Stefansson's six forgotten Inuit grandchildren.

He was one of the first explorers to adopt the Inuit lifestyle, living off the land. The film incorporates extraordinary, rare archival footage.
