The most obvious crisis is the rapid melting of the ice cap which portends the demise of numerous Arctic species and has made it too dangerous for the local Inuit to pursue traditional hunting for clothing and food. In addition, global winds and sea currents have brought massive amounts of toxic pollution from other countries, causing disease and birth anomalies in both humans and animals who inhabit the area.

This film follows the coming together of top experts on the Arctic, politicians, environmental scientists and religious leaders from Christian, Muslim, Hebrew, Buddhist, Hindu, Jain and Sikh traditions—along with Saami and Inuit leaders—as they draw attention to the environmental changes in Greenland that are already affecting the rest of the planet. At the same time they talk about what can be done to turn things around.
