In an Arctic village in 1931, British mapmaker Walter Russell (Patrick Bergin) selects 12-year-old Eskimo Avik (Robert Joamie) as his guide. When the boy contracts tuberculosis, Walter flies him to a Montreal hospital, where Avik meets Albertine (Annie Galipeau) and is infatuated. A decade later, a grown Avik (Jason Scott Lee) encounters Albertine (Anne Parillaud) again in London, where he's serving as a British combat pilot. Despite her relationship with Walter, she and Avik begin an affair.
