Summary Alaska has undergone a rapid transformation from traditional Eskimo life to modern living in an extraordinarily short period of time. The Nunamiut Eskimo village of Anaktuvuk Pass, is at once a microcosm of this larger transition and markedly unique. The three hundred residents of this small, isolated town are the only tribe of inland Eskimos in the world, comprising their own linguistic group and biological heritage. Unlike most traditional cultures which have been ravaged by Western culture, Anaktuvuk has balanced old ways and new horizons. The anthropologist lived among a family of four generations and captures with spontaneity their daily life. From the elders who remember hunting caribou and still speak only their native language to the youngsters who search the internet and participate in consumer culture, Anaktuvuk is two worlds in one. The film follows the day-to-day struggles of Juke and Julia, his pregnant girlfriend, as they try to come to terms with their future
