A documentary with a fresh, critical approach to Western conservation looks at seal hunting from the Inuit point of view. The international campaign which has turned out to be a profit-giving slot machine has slowed down the sale of seal products globally. It threatens to destroy an ancient culture for which seal hunting is an important part of the identity. But we are already witnessing the rise of new Inuit warriors that know how to use the social media.
