Single mother Anna returns to the close-knit community of Igloolik during the summer months of midnight sun. Born and raised in Montreal, her 14-year-old son, Tomas, has never before seen the town where his father’s Inuk family hails from. But the joy of his homecoming is mixed with the unavoidable memories of a brief and painful chapter in their shared history as, over the course of a single fortnight, Anna and Thomas strive to rebuild their family.
