Renowned Inuit lawyer Aaju Peter has led a lifelong fight for the rights of indigenous people.

This intimate and frank, Sundance-selected portrait follows Aaju as she launches an effort to establish an Indigenous forum at the European Union, and embarks on a personal journey to reclaim her language and culture after a lifetime of whitewashing and forced assimilation. Aaju is magnetic to watch: an irrepressible spirit, a galvanising activist, but also a woman still struggling with her own demons and traumas. Is it possible to change the world and mend your own wounds at the same time?
