Based on Inuit mythology, this film relates the tale of a woman thrown into the waters by her father who becomes a skeleton ghost. One day, a fisherman unaware of the skeleton ghost legend fishes her up and revives her with his warm heart. They eventually become a couple. Although there are many women who experience violence and abandonment by their family, it seems almost impossible for a woman and a man to spend their lives together in unconditional love, with only burning passion for each other. This is not the North Pole.
