Igloo­lik, Fall 1945. Even here, news of the ter­ri­ble world war raging out­side makes people fright­ened and uneasy. They talk of the danger of the unknown future, of shaman­is­tic inter­ven­tion to pro­tect their cul­ture. The weath­er turns colder, north wind blow­ing, Inuaraq builds his sod house, Quli­ta­lik cuts the ice blocks for the porch.
