The Women Meqqu, a shaman from a small community in western Greenland, is assigned to the journey of her life out in the wide world. Her task is to bring back the lost soul of a young man. The journey goes astray and suddenly it is 1978 and she finds herself in a Danish prison cell. In the same cell, a young man awakens.
