David is thrilled to join his Mom on her research trip to the Inuit community of Kangiqsujuaq. But things are not the way he pictured it: no internet, no more polar bears in sight, and he is left behind with a strange Elder and her granddaughter Paasa.

When he watches Paasa collect fresh mussels from beneath the ice, David sees a chance to have his own splendid scientific adventure. Ignoring local safety rule and traditional custom, David sneaks out and climbs below the frozen ocean ice - ALONE.

But as Sea Goddes, Sedna, tells us in the old Inuit myth: there is a right time and a right way to do things in the harsh Arctic
