The sea animals have disappeared, and people are starving. An old couple, once great shamans, are asked to journey to the Mother of the Sea to find out what happened to the animals. But the journey is dangerous . . .
The Mother of the Sea is an important character in Inuit traditional stories shared across the circumpolar region. This version of the tale is one that has been told and retold in Greenland for generations.
