A woman who grew up in a small town in Alaska goes to the public library to try and find out who her parents were. She was brought to town as a baby in a cardboard box with "Kotzebue" on it, which is the name of the town and also the name of the family that founded the town. She eventually befriends the librarian, an East German immigrant who lost her husband while escaping from behind the Iron Curtain. They help each other try to find closure to the events in their past. Written by

Shortly before the end of the credits there is the following paragraph: 'No animals were killed exclusively for the production of this film. Furs were worn simply to depict the lifestyle of the native Inupiat culture.' See more »
This is one of the strangest movies I've ever seen. Half the time you can't tell if you're watching a dream sequence or it's actually part of real time. It may be all my fault. I enjoy the classic movies from the 40's and 50's with stars like Greer Garson, Robert Mitchum, James Stuart, John Wayne , Gregory Peck, etc. I was saddened to see one of Chuck Connors last acting efforts be such an embarrassent.
