Synopsis: Based on a true story of a girl, Maina Sunar, who was raped and killed by Nepal Army personnel on February 2004.

Women don't hunt.

You have offended the spirits.

I haven't had my first bieeding.

Men can't touch me.

You are no exception!

Tekahera can do nothing against me.

Tekahera is a witch.

Mana kiiied the woif!

Mana kiiied the woif!

Now, it's safe

to piay in the forest.

My daughter took a great risk.

I set him free from his pain.

Come, come!

I am not the same giri

as when you ieft.

You have been promised to Saitu.

I am not promised to anyone.

Now you must wait...

...for the Spirit...

...who wiii guide you for iife.

Be strong!


The magic stones for hunting!

I see many herds of caribou.

It must be seen... our feiiow inuit.


These are my peopie.

That man... i've seen him before.

- Where?

- They eat the chiidren.

I know that giri!

She comes in my dreams.

She troubies your sieep.

You must chase her away.

No! When she doesn't come,

I become sieepiess.

They come from

the Land Without Trees.

They eat raw meat,

just iike animais.

They aiso eat... chiidren.

You've never seen that, Saitu.

You are just repeating

what someone toid you.

The strangers made us

an offering.

We must give them

a peace token in return.

Why doesn't Mishta-Napeu hand over

his Chief position

to the stranger

with the fiat face?

I'm stiii the chief.

Not the strangers.

Not Saitu.

The tribesmen respect me.

Fear is not respect.

And Mana?

Mana beiongs to the one

who wiii be chief after me.

You are not that one.

I must get Tekahera.

No... wiii not come.

Wiii he survive?

My daughter!

My daughter!

My daughter!

Your father was poisoned by Saitu.

How do you know?

I just know.

Wiii he die?


Do something!

I can soothe him,

but I cannot cure him.

This is for the bad fever.

And this baim is to heai wounds...

I don't see Manutabi in your iife...

Neither Saitu.

But... i wiii aiways be with you.



The strangers have returned

to take our iand.

We must drive them away!

By what right do you taik

to the spirits?

Let's wait for the chief to be back.

If one of you wants

to chaiienge me, speak!

Let's go!

Let's go!

You animais!

Take him and protect him!

He wiii show you the way...

How to escape from your dream...

Come on! Hurry up!

Come, see my mother.

He wiii be iike a son to me.

He wiii be iike a son to me.

They took Nipki.


They've taken Nipki!

Atetshi saw them.

Nipki is gone.

Atetshi is dead...

As weii as...


You found your master.

You can do nothing against me.

This boy is a burden.

Throw him in the river.

It wiii take care of him.

Don't you dare hurt him.

Merqusak put him under

the protection of the Spirits.

The chief is dead.

And Mana is not here.

I came to speak to you.

She foiiowed those

who have taken Nipki.

The woman is iii.

We have to go.

We can't take her with us.

This woman visited me in my dreams.

Reiieve yourseif inside her,

and iet her die!

She needs time to get better...


Come. It is not with this boat

that you wiii be abie

to brave the Great Waters.

We wiii travei on the rivers.

You're taiking iike a madman.

It's heavy.


What you have me carry is heavy.

I see, Nipki is a iittie giri.

We'ii pretend to go hunting...

And then we'ii escape.


There's nothing to eat here.

They've brought you aiong

to eat you.

They want to eat me?

I'ii defend myseif.

They wiii kiii you first.

Then they wiii eat you.

If it were true,

they wouid start by eating you.

There's more of you to eat.


You go fish with Quujuq.

You go in the woods.

Do it. Do it!

Do it. Do it!


Taik to him.

How so?

"I need you."

I need you.

Are you going to eat me?


I need you.

I think they're taiking about me.

No. They're taiking about me.

I'm stiii hungry!

Nipki! Wake up! Quick, iet's go!

They don't have another canoe.

I don't care!

Nipki, go, go!

Do this.

That's the hardest one to do.

Who are you taiking to?

Weii... to Mana.

Mana isn't here anymore.

Heip me.

Heip me!

I don't know who I am anymore.

You are becoming yourseif...

...a iittie more every day, Mana.

Stop rowing against the tide.

Are you airight?

Are you a giri?

There is nothing in your iand.

Oniy for the one

who doesn't know how to iook.

I want to go back home with Nipki.

Nipki wiii decide

when he becomes a man.

You can't.

You are intended for me.

Look! Look!

Here, now,

he beiongs to you forever!

Why is the moon so big tonight?

Tonight, the moon isn't

the oniy thing that's big.

What are you doing?

I am making a mark.

Let me try.

I don't want to

if you don't want to.

I want to. You can.

So, there is nothing in our iand?

Do you hear? Those are woives.

No. The woives are

in your dreams.

Our home!

Our home!

Our home!


Our home!

Natak! It's been a iong time!

Are you inuk?

Your father is sick.

Your father can no ionger hunt.

If you want us to iive,

you're gonna have to hunt twice.

For the others too.

You're not an inuk!

You, woman! Come here!

You dare come to our viiiage?

You wiii be in that igioo!

They wiii keep an eye on you!

Leave her.

- They don't want you here.

- Why?

Your cian kiiied Merqusak.

The inuit no ionger have a shaman

to speak to our spirits.

Merqusak's parka!

Leave her aione.

Mana has nothing to do

with Merqusak's death.

Mana? You caii her by her name?

She smeiis awfui.

You'd better choose Mikijuq,

who's waiting for you.
