Set in Nunavut, circa 1913. Kuanana returns from a caribou hunt to discover his wife and daughter kidnapped, and the rest of his family slaughtered. His father's spirit helper, the loon Kallulik, sets him on course to overturn fate and reunite his family. Using the plot of John Ford’s 1956 western The Searchers as inspiration for a very different kind of revenge story, this film questions not only the colonial ideology inherent to the western genre, but also the possibility of justice in a seemingly unjust world.
