Synopsis : From the west, a Beothuk hunting party. From the east, an expedition of Norse Greenlanders looking for farmland. At the turn of the first millennium on the island now called Newfoundland, native North Americans and Europeans chance upon each other for the first time. Their meeting goes smoothly at first, but turns hostile within the year due to misunderstood intentions. When a chance to return to good relations presents itself, both sides must weigh the risks. Two women, Bobodish of the Genoet band and Gudrid Thorbjarnardóttir (Guðríð Þorbjarnardóttir), tell the story of this short-lived historical contact from perspectives that are sometimes contradictory, sometimes converging.
