Set in the backdrop of a Northern Inuit village, where Evil Spirits linger behind snow mountains, Under the Yellow Kite is a portrait of a woman’s courage, a visionary of changing times, and the survival she faces against her abusive husband, her community and traditions. It remains a story of untold love as her husband's half brother vows to protect her only to intensify conflicts between brothers. With nostalgic affection, Naskitchu recalls her teacher, Miss Rice, at a time when Povungnituk had an elementary school and the lives of children that were in contradiction to the white man's ways. Naskitchu, Jetsuk, Angliuk, and Miss Rice, the story unfolds as they survive each in their own way to make sense of the changing world around them, in a place where the North remains cruel and invincible.
