In 1897, Robert E. Peary, the first American to “conquer" the North Pole, brought back six polar Inuit to create an exhibition at a New York museum. The only one who survived was a young boy. Peary’s Inuit great-grandson confronts this unsettling history when he makes an expedition to his ancestral home in order to discover his cultural legacy.
