Synopsis The life of Qalli and Aivaaq, adolescent Inuits and bosom friends, takes place in Alaska with no changes: old traditions, hip hop, snowmobiles and seal hunting. The comfortable claustrophobia in which they have lived in their isolated Alaskan village is perturbed the day on which, while seal hunting with James, an unprecedented fight breaks up between them, escalating beyond their expectations and leading James to an accidental death from a blow to the neck. Frightened and not knowing what to do, Qalli and Aivaaq decide to hide the body under the ice on which they are fishing, thus hiding their guilt to the rest of the village. But one lie leads to another until they get entangled in an increasingly difficult web. What is worse, they are forever bound by the dark secret they share and hide.
