The Snow Walker

Synopsis: 1953. Charlie Halliday, a former WWII fighter pilot, is a Yellowknife-based bush pilot. Like many of the white in the area, he does not associate with the Inuit except for what he can get out of them in bartering. On a personal plane trip, he runs across a small family of nomadic Inuit. The female of the group, named Kanaalaq, has what Charlie suspects is tuberculosis. In exchange for some ivory, Charlie agrees to fly her to a hospital in Yellowknife. En route back to the city, Charlie is forced to make a crash landing when the plane develops mechanical problems. Although both Charlie and Kanaalaq are unharmed by the crash, the plane is totaled, they are in the middle of nowhere, the radio doesn't seem to be working, they have a meager amount of supplies, and Charlie's whereabouts are probably unknown to others since he made a detour from his original route. Furthermore, they can't communicate with each other as Kanaalaq only knows a few words of English, whereas Charlie knows no Inukt

Nobody knows where

You know Charlie's got women

stashed all over the bloody map.

I know, but shouldn't we have

heard something by now?

Hey, don't worry about it.

He's fine.

I'll start worrying

about Charlie Holladay

five minutes after

hell freezes over.

I'll tell ya what though...

Shit! No!





A town couple hundred

miles east of here.

I'm gonna head for it.
