A campaign led by influential animal protection organisations, supported by many international celebrities, has led to a significant restrictions on commercial seal hunting. This step was also disastrous for Inuits, who are economically dependent on the seal hunting. The director, Inuit herself, points out the damages her nation has suffered from the ban on the import of seal products into the EU. She documents and actively supports arguments that seal hunting is no worse than the standard animal husbandry in Europe. However Inuit´s efforts clash with the environmentalists’ attitude. The latter play here the role of a powerful global player, who ignores the rights and traditions of an endangered ethnic group. The movie is disrupting the traditional view of ecological movements agenda and proving the difficulty of harmonizing economic interests with ecological ones all around the world.
