The imaginative tale of an Inuit boy who acquires dangerous otherworldly powers

Huuq is a young Inuit boy who has never fit in to camp life. One day, fleeing yet another attack from the camp bullies, Huuq finds himself alone and far away, with only his dog Qipik as company. On a lonesome hill, they find an egg. When Huuq breaks this mysterious egg, it unleashes a series of events that turn Huuq himself into a monstrous half-human creature. As Huuq tries to figure out why he has been turned into a monster, he is thrust into a world of fearsome creatures, mystical powers and an evil the likes of which Huuq has never encountered.
