Disaster looms over Greenland as it rests silently under its thinning ice cover undisturbed by the media. One of the Earth's most fragile and fascinating ecosystems has fallen victim to global warming: 248 sq. km. of snow cover melts away every year. Worst affected by this change are the Inuit, a hunter-fisher population that has inhabited this inhospitable area for centuries. Behind this are the interests of big oil companies eager to stake their claim in the new El Dorado. A thoughtprovoking documentary that argues its point with visual evidence and expert opinion.
