In Aupaluk, Northern Quebec, a small cluster of primary coloured buildings cluster amidst the blinding white tundra. We are introduced to the tiny town (population 200, mainly Inuit) by a thoughtful teenager named Martha. Against footage of her painting in school, smoking with friends, and sewing her own clothes, Martha’s voiceover describes the pride she feels as an Inuk, and how she loves the peace, calm and beauty of her hometown – even if she occasionally feels lonely and isolated. A quiet and beautiful film about a quiet and beautiful place.
