LOGLINE
In the far north, sedna and nanook dream of bringing back their family together. after sedna’s death, nanook walks a long way to find his daughter Ága, who ran away years ago.

SYNOPSIS
In a yurt on the snow – covered fields of the North, Nanook and Sedna live following the traditions of their ancestors. Alone in the wilderness, they look like the last people on Earth.

Nanook and Sedna’s traditional way of life starts changing – slowly, but inevitably. The game is disappearing, the animals around them die from inexplicable deaths, and the ice has been melting earlier every year.

Their routine is broken only by the sporadic visits by Chena, a young man who lives in the closest settlement.

When Sedna’s health deteriorates and she eventually dies, Nanook decides to fulfil her last wish and find Ága – their daughter who ran away long ago, abandoning their traditions and choosing to live in the city.

Nanook embarks on a long journey to reunite with his daughter.

DIRECTORS NOTE
For a long time, I’ve been fascinated how the modern and quickly developing world concerns the small communities; how processes that have nothing in common at first sight, affect fatally the life of entire nations.

My intention with this movie is to look steadily at how the offensive civilization put to proof the conservation of Northern communities. I am interested how these same people, who live in unbearable conditions for the modern man, have succeeded to preserve the delicacy in their interpersonal relations, and to perceive life with smile and sympathy.
