It's summertime, a time when Inuit communities come together to share food, tell stories, and marry their young. Ninguig (Ivalu) and her best friend Kutuujuk (Mary Qulitalik) are elders in one such community, and when Ninguig gets word that the Europeans are advancing she fears for the future of her people. But Ninguig has a more immediate problem to worry about as well; Kutuujuk has fallen gravely ill, and it looks as if she won't live to see another winter. After returning from a fishing excursion with a rather bountiful catch, Ningiuq, her grandson Maniq (Paul-Dylan Ivalu), and Kutuujuk prepare to dry the fish. Alone on a remote and uninhabited island, the trio waits for someone from their tribe to arrive and guide them back home. When no one appears to do so, Ningiuq and Maniq decide to set off for home while Kutuujuk waits behind. Unfortunately Ningiuq has a foreboding feeling about the journey, and she's about to discover just how accurate her instincts truly are

A documentary from Arnait Video Productions (Women's Video Workshop of Igloolik). Abandoned by her father, a White RCMP officer, Vivi Kunuk was adopted by the Inuk family of her mother who raised her as a boy. This is but one remarkable chapter in her life. With her husband Enuki, she raised eleven children, including award-winning filmmaker Zacharias Kunuk, living most of the year on the land as her nomadic ancestors did prior to the creation of government settlements in the 1950's. Surrounded by her grandchildren, she recounts stories about the land she knows intimately and her life's destiny on Baffin Island. The history of changes experienced by Inuit people in the last sixty years is contained in the story of Vivi Kunuk - an ordinary woman with an extraordinary life
