At the end of the Second World War, Elsa, a young Inuk woman, must come to terms with motherhood after she is raped — and with the changing epoch ushered in by her blond, blue-eyed son. Co-directors Madeline Ivalu and Marie-Hélène Cousineau deliver a restrained yet romantic adaptation of the novel by Gabrielle Roy in their poignant portrayal of a young woman caught between two worlds. As she walks the fine line between tradition and modernity, cultural identity and forced assimilation, freedom and sacrifice, Elsa’s indomitable resistance reflects the surrounding nature, eternal and ever restless.
