Little, or almost nothing, is known about the people living in the Bering Strait. What are their living conditions, their needs, their thoughts? What customs feed their culture and how do they see themselves and the rest of the planet? This documentary gives us a look into their everyday life, one unknown to the outside world—an updated vision of Robert J. Flaherty’s Nanook of the North.
