Hayat is a skilled seawoman who sails across the Arctic, navigating far away from people and her troubled youth in France. But when her little sister Leila gives birth to a baby girl Inaya, the promise of new beginnings is on the horizon. We witness how the sisters’ worlds are turned upside down, each going on a deeply personal journey, guided by the Northern Star to overturn their family’s fate.
