In a 1948 clandestine operation, 100 Mushuau Innu - an indigenous hunting people of Northern Labrador, Canada - were ordered into the cargo hold of a ship and transported far beyond their lands. The move to Nutak was an omen for what was to follow. It marked the first attempt of the Canadian government to settle the nomadic Innu. In this film, Innu elders revisit Nutak and tell their memories.
