Along the Arctic Coast, at the northmost point on American soil, we explore the inseparable bond between mother and child, the sacred and fragile moments after birth and the importance of protecting the place Where Life Begins. This film is an intimate look at the indigenous Gwich’in people, whose way of life has depended on the yearly migration of the Porcupine Caribou for thousands of years.
