In 1931, Walter Russell, a Canadian airman, flies into an Inuit village in Canada to map the area. He meets a boy, Avik, who is suffering from tuberculosis, and offers to take him to Montreal to receive medical treatment. At the hospital, Avik meets and falls in love with Albertine, a girl of mixed French Canadian and First Nation heritage, with whom his life will be forever linked. Spanning decades and distance, through war and adversity, their star-crossed relationship becomes a grand romantic adventure of never-ending intensity.
