French (Available dubbed in English)

It’s the autumn of 1910 in Canada’s Far North and the Inuit are starving, but even the tribe’s ancient shaman can’t do a thing to keep the hunters from coming back empty-handed. A wise woman speaks of a promised land where wild game abound but where only those with pure hearts can enter. Three young clan members, including 1 with budding shamanic gifts, set off to find the promised land and food for the tribe. Sensing his power being threatened, the shaman does his best to sabotage their mission. This touching animation film chronicles the future shaman’s journey of discovery as he learns to accept and use his special powers.
