Shot on digital video, this version of an old Inuit legend tells of the damage done when a cruel shaman unleashes a malevolent spirit in the midst of an Inuit community.
Atanarjuat, the Fast Runner, and Amaqjuaq, the Strong One, are the two sons of Tulimaq, a man who was originally intended to become community leader, but who lost his place after the intervention of the shaman.
When Atanarjuat wins the hand of Atuat from rival suitor Oki, the son of the community leader installed by the evil shaman, this continues the dispute between the two families and leads to further discord.
Oki uses his sister Puja to deceive Atanarjuat and mount an attack on the camp he shares with his brother Amaqjuaq; the Fast Runner luckily survives the onslaught, but will he be able to find a way to bring an end to this legacy of violence?
