Children and adults alike will enjoy this beautifully told fable about the power of a mother's love. Based on the award-winning children's book by Barbara M. Joosse, it tells the story of a young Inuit child, Nyla, who disobeys her mother and journeys from her Arctic village to an ice floe in search of her wayward puppy. She discovers that no matter how much trouble she gets into, her mother's love is unconditional and enduring. Kids will enjoy seeing details of Inuit life, learning about the beauty of the frozen Arctic, and watching colorful animals including whales, polar bears, wolves, puffins, and sled dogs. Its warm message, imaginative story, and original score make this tale well worth watching with young children. --Elisabeth KeatingReview:
