Yves Delaunay, a Swiss citizen, answers the call of the North. He seeks to
understand how the Inuit are coping with the mutations taking place in the
Arctic and the violent sway of climate change. In Sachs Harbour, an Inuit
village on the fringes of the Earth, he discovers a small community which
struggles daily to face the challenges of modernity by way of carving out a
place within it. This documentary is a necessary encounter with the North.
Will we be able to preserve this mythical yet very real place that risks
disappearing and taking with it an essential part of each of us ?
