This film is about a film maker who joins a group of expert Icelandic kayakers on a trip to Kulusuk in Greenland. He describes what it is like to kayak across a fjord filled with drift ice wich is constantly moving and changing. Indeed, the whole environment is ruled by ice, snow, light and darkness.
The group visit a remote inuit village and this section gives a picture of the habits and customs of the villagers in the past and present, where the staple diet is sealmeat eaten either dry or raw.
This is a lyrical account wich combines a modern point of view with the history of the Inuits in east Greenland, a region where, fortunately, the pace and stress of the western world is still absent.
