In the summer of 1840 some of the Inuit in northern Canada have never encountered white people, although rumors circulate about their arrival. This stunning meditation on life, death and cultural transition tells the story of Ningiuq, an old woman of strength and wisdom, who cannot stop worrying—feeling dread about something she does not understand. When Maniq and her grandson Ningiuq discover an unspeakable tragedy, troubling answers begin to emerge.
