On a philanthropic, fact-finding mission to the Arctic, Charles Annenberg Weingarten dives into the unique culture of the Inuit people of Greenland and learns about their rare, traditional cuisine, which includes raw seal meat, whale, caribou, walrus and fish. Charles also visits the Qimaavik Women's Shelter for abused women and children, and learns about the high crime rate of Nunavut territory being tackled by extraordinary individuals in the area. Lastly, Charles experiences the husky throat singing of two Inuit girls; he breaks the myth of the Arctic kiss; and he learns Inuit from a patient elder.
