The 40-foot yacht Silent Sound bumps through ice and fog in the infamous Northwest Passage, her small crew nervously scanning the horizon for clear water. Fewer people have sailed this passage than have climbed Mt Everest. These waters are normally locked in ice, but due to climate change it is now possible to sail here for a few short weeks each summer. The crew drop anchor in Inuit villages where they join hunters in stalking their game and experience the last vestiges of an ancient nomadic culture. Each person they meet destroys another fantastic stereotype about the Inuit and their way of life.
