Synopsis by Mark Deming
This animated adaptation of the children's book by Barbara M. Joosse follows a young Inuit girl named Nyla as she searches for her lost puppy amidst the beautiful but dangerous plains of the Arctic. Nyla disobeys her mother and sets out to find the dog among the deadly ice flows at the outskirts of the village, and she soon begins to fear that she's violated her mother's trust forever. This film was produced as part of the Door of Wonder series.
