Six hundred years ago, in the aftermath of a bloody confrontation between her Innu tribe, and the Inuit (the “men from the Land of Ice”), Maïna fulfills a death-bed promise to her friend Matsii, following the trail of her enemies to retrieve Matsii’s 11-year-old son, Nipki, who has been captured by the Inuit. Maïna is taken captive herself and forced to travel with the Inuit to the Land of Ice. This beautiful film daringly introduces us to the fascinating civilizations that founded America.
