In 1953, Inuit families were forcibly relocated to the uninhabited and inhospitable high arctic, 1500 kilometres north of their traditional homeland of Nunavik, in northern Québec, to extend Canadian claims of sovereignty to Ellesmere Island. Inuit endured families torn apart and many years of hardship. Devastating first-person accounts of survival and broken promises express the continuing impact effects of these events on the people forced to endure them. Directed by Zacharias Kunuk, survivors tell their stories.
