An Inuk grandmother lives alone with her son. Left alone for long periods she is bored, tired of sewing skins for someone not her husband but rather her taciturn son who only likes to hunt. She forces him to find a wife; she tells him to go to the neighbouring encampment. There are young women there one of whom he steals when she doesn’t want to follow him. On his return with his young wife, the grandmother falls in love with the young woman and passionately desires her. One day when the young hunter comes back from the seal hunt blinded by the snow, she flees with the young woman thus abandoning her son to certain death. He will find them again. He will kill his mother then his young wife when she refuses to follow him.
