1953. Charlie Halliday, a former WWII fighter pilot, is a Yellowknife-based bush pilot. Like many of the white in the area, he does not associate with the Inuit except for what he can get out of them in bartering. On a personal plane trip, he runs across a small family of nomadic Inuit. The female of the group, named Kanaalaq, has what Charlie suspects is tuberculosis. In exchange for some ivory, Charlie agrees to fly her to a hospital in Yellowknife. En route back to the city, Charlie is forced to make a crash landing when the plane develops mechanical problems. Although both Charlie and Kanaalaq are unharmed by the crash, the plane is totaled, they are in the middle of nowhere, the radio doesn't seem to be working, they have a meager amount of supplies, and Charlie's whereabouts are probably unknown to others since he made a detour from his original route.

The Snow Walker is a fantastic film! Barry Pepper captivated the audience as we followed him on his soulful journey through the arctic. He kept the audience laughing the whole way with the undeniably entertaining chemistry with Annabella. Their stark contrast of cultures is what creates the powerful energy that moved me and everyone around me to tears at the peak of the films emotion. Annabella was brilliant! She held the heart of the film and gave it the warmth needed to make the picture work amidst all of the cold. I could not imagine this movie without her. James Cromwell and the rest of the ensemble cast provided the realism of this period piece. His familiar presence was ensuring and comforting given the circumstance of the story. The whole cast made the film one to remember and gives it a classic quality that you can only find in some epic Disney films like 'White Fang" or 'Never Cry Wolf". Highly recommended!
