For more than fifteen years, Frank Bruno has been surveying Greenland by all possible means on this land of ice and silence.

For several years, a small blue house has been his home, in the hamlet of Oqaatsut located more than three hundred and fifty kilometers north of the Arctic Circle. Made up of hunting families, 20 inhabitants for 140 dogs, life in the village is absolutely different from all other places on the planet. It took him a lot of time and patience to get adopted. Only ice and time are masters, a national motto that takes on its full meaning. Several months a year, he lives there, he takes his time there.

The exploding icebergs, the sea that suddenly freezes, the violent northern winds, the whales that come to gorge on krill, the extreme solitude, these are the daily lives that fascinate him. But life is made of paradox, to voluntarily escape this recluse life, each year he invites a group of amputees like him, to share a piece of his polar life.

Like an iceberg that only leaves a ninth of its mass above the surface of the ocean, Frank hides his wounds, his abandonments. In this opus he reveals himself to become this child who runs the world in search of his lost loves. We will also see the arrival of an atypical rope party which will attempt to climb Perserajuk which is the highest mountain in the region. Silences and glances will be the main players in this opus which pays homage to life, without filter.

This film retraces the atypical journey of a man who was able to get back up despite all his injuries. Homage to life, the power of sharing and the magnificence of the present moment.
