Featuring stunning footage from seven winters in the Arctic, takes us through time into the world of the Inuit in the northern reaches of Canada. Connecting past, present and future is the Inuit's unique relationship with the eider duck. Eider down, the warmest feather in the world, allows both Inuit and bird to survive harsh Arctic winters--but industrial projects and dambuilding have thrown the balance far off and threatened the Inuit's way of life to a perilous tipping point.

By looking at the interconnectedness of the eider duck and the Inuits who live on the Belcher Islands in Hudson Bay, we can see how Arctic sea life is affected by events taking place elsewhere. Hydroelectric dams are changing water patterns. We can see the changes affect the daily lives of these island people. I hope it will make us all stop and think about what we are doing to our environment.
