When the Polar ice melts due to climate change, it is the daily life in Greenland and Northern Canada that is first exposed. Through hundreds of years, the Inuit people has developed their special way of living, very close to nature and completely dependent on hunting.

Knut Espen Solberg, a young explorer from Norway sets out to test the ice conditions on the way through the Northwest Passage between the Atlantic and the Pacific Ocean, a journey always associated with the greatest hazard. The ice has stopped many daring explorers, but now the ocean is open. On their way thousands of water samples and many interviews with catchmen are gathered to make a better understanding of future dangers and possibilities in this vulnerable place on earth.
