With the mountains and ice floes of Greenland as backdrop, Ujuunnguaq Heinrich arguably has the most beautiful workplace on earth. “I wouldn’t trade this for the world!” he says smiling at the camera, before returning his gaze towards the horizon. Hunting seals is all he has ever known, but things could have turned out very differently for Ujuunnguaq, as we learn in this intimate documentary. As trust is gained, his story unfolds - one of unbearable loss and personal struggle. Once a broken man, we discover how he managed to find strength in being vulnerable. This documentary offers a glimpse into Ujuunnguaq’s incredible life and the bigger issues that the Inuit face today - from an inside perspective.
