"Two men meet in the Eskimo Room at the American Museum of Natural History in 1935. Robert Peary Jr. is young, white and brash. He is there to protect the good name of his father, Robert Edwin Peary, who in 1909 laid claim to the title of the first man to reach the North Pole. Matthew Henson, who accompanied Peary on that journey, is old, black and full of regret. A smart, powerful and deeply moving examination of colonialism at home and abroad." - The Globe and Mail
