Navarana is a Polar Inuit elder who lives in the most remote corner of the planet, the northwest tip of Greenland. Her ancestor was a shaman who led a legendary migration and Navarana knows she is connected by blood to a group of Canadian Inuit. Wondering what life is like for her distant cousins in today's Arctic, she sets out on hunting journeys in both her homeland and on Baffin Island. And while discovering that these isolated groups of Inuit share much in common, Navarana also witnesses striking differences in lifestyle between Greenlanders and Canadians. At a time when her people are up against vast and inescapable challenges, Navarana looks for the way forward and considers what has been lost and what has been gained.

This slowly unfolding saga of an Eskimo woman's trip from Greenland to southern Baffin Island in search of her distant Inuit relatives and their traditional customs ... and how global climate change is affecting the subsistence lifestyle. Stunning cinematography. Language spoken throughout is Inuktitut with English subtitles.

Violence: Scenes of shooting of whales; and netting and killing of scores of sea birds. Butchering of game and eating of raw meat is shown several times all as part of the traditional subsistence way of life in the high Arctic.
