“Sit down. What did you see out there?” “Nothing.” “Something happened. I went back the trail today. There was a spot where the tracks are messed up like somebody dug up the snow.”
The sun rarely sets where Qualli and his best buddy Aivaaq live. In their settlement in Alaska nothing can be hidden. Everyone knows everyone. The young men race around on their snowmobiles and have rap battles at parties. During a seal hunt the white snow gets covered in bloodstains. The secret which the two friends are sharing, is getting out of control. The question is whether the cold currents will carry the truth back to the shore or remain buried under the ice for ever.
