    As a child, Inuk (played as a teen by newcomer Gaba Petersen) witnessed his father’s death in a tragic dog-sledding accident. Since then he has lived with his increasingly alcoholic mother in the capital, Nuuk, cut off from his former life in the wilds. When social services finally steps in, Inuk finds himself living near his traditional home and paired up with taciturn hunter Ikuma (Ole Jorgen Hammeken), whose attachment to the land and knowledge of traditional ways offer a glimpse of a different life for the troubled teen.

    Pete and Jagamarra live in an abandoned drive-in movie theater, enjoying the vast skyscapes and starry nights. Pete’s grandfather teaches the boy the traditional Aboriginal shamanic ways and how to live with nature alone. Pete resists his grandfather’s mystical teachings, preferring to race around on his bike with his friends. That changes when they discover that the new owners are going to demolish their home, the old outdoor cinema. Pete and his friend decides to trek to the city to plea for its preservation, only to get lost in the desert wilderness on the way. Starving and thirsty Pete learns the value of his grandfather’s teachings.
