The Legend of Sarila (2012) 10

Canada | 2012 | 82 min.

Life can be harsh and challenging at the best of times for the people who live on the Arctic tundra. But when all the animals in the area suddenly disappear, leaving the hunters empty-handed and the community on the brink of famine, the brave youth Markussi realizes that drastic measures are required. In defiance of the clan shaman Kiliq, Markussi sets out with his friends Putulik and Apik and their adorable lemming sidekick Kimi in search of the legendary land of Sarila, which is said to be rich in fish, game and fruit. Pursued by the jealous shaman and confronted with numerous dangers, the intrepid trio must restore the natural balance of the environment in order to save their people.
