    • Synopsis
    • 600 years ago. In the aftermath of a bloody confrontation between her band, the Innu tribe,
      and the Inuit, the “Men from the Land of Ice”, MAÏNA, daughter of Grand Chief Mishtenapuu,
      finds herself on a mission that will change the course of her life. In order to fulfill a promise
      made to her friend Matsii as she lay on her deathbed, MAÏNA has to follow the trail of her
      enemies to retrieve Nipki, Matsiis 11-year-old son who has been captured by the Inuit. She is
      taken captive herself by Natak, the Inuit clans leader, and forced to travel with them to the
      Land of Ice.
      MAINA introduces us to these fascinating civilizations that founded America.
