WINNER OF 4 GENIE AWARDS, including Best Director, Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay. Set in the 1950s, Benoit Pilon's debut feature film follows Tivii, an Inuit hunter, who is flown from Baffin Island in the far north to Quebec City, where the government plans to treat his illness. Separated from his family and unable to communicate with those around him, Tivii loses the will to live, until his sympathetic nurse, Carole, arranges for a young Inuit boy named Kaki, to be transferred to his sanatorium. Kaki offers him companionship and a means to communicate while Tivii teaches Kaki about the ways of the Inuit people.
