Storyline

Maïna is the daughter of the Innu Chief Mishte-nape, who witnesses a bloody clash between their clan and the clan of "Men of the Land Without Trees." Following this unsolicited confrontation, Maïna chooses a mission that will change her life. To fulfill the promise that she made to her friend Matsii on her deathbed, she embarks on the trail of their enemies to rescue Nipki, her friend's 11-year old boy that the Inuit have captured. But she is also taken as a prisoner by Natak, the leader of the Inuit group, and forcibly taken to the Land Without Trees. Written by Anonymous

What a surprise!
22 March 2014 | by (Quebec, Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie about pre-European Innu and Inuit has adventure, fighting and romance, and the cinematography is simply amazing. I had never even heard of it before today and saw it because the movie I did go to see was sold out.

Call it serendipity.

The acting is good; it's a tearjerker at points, feels good and ends with a couple of new beginnings, though not for sequel purposes.

I was riveted. I took a look at the audience and they were in rapt attention.

Highly recommended.
