Sixteen-year-old Native American city girl Lia is sent to spend the summer with her grandmother in a small community in Canada’s breathtaking Northwest Territories. Desperate to return home she steals a boat and becomes lost in the vast wilderness where she is discovered by Alfred, a Gwich’in hunter. Reluctantly taking her under his wing, their unexpected friendship develops and both will be tested when Alfred is severely wounded in a bear attack and Lia fights to save their lives. -

"The Sun at Midnight is a lyrically crafted, cross-generational, tenderly told tale [that captures] delicately layered, revealed emotional moments amidst the grandeur and breathtaking raw beauty of the immense Arctic wilderness." Prairie Miller, WBAI/Pacifica National Radio Network
