Set in a 13th century polar community, a young boy's destiny transforms him from a frightened child into a courageous hero. Illuak, a Too-lee boy, has been told by his grandmother that it is his fate to save his people from a bear. But the mere thought of a polar bear makes Illuak's stomach churn and he lives in fear of this destined encounter. When Illuak summons the courage to rescue a Northman (Viking) child from a polar bear he realises there is a far greater challenge involved in the prophecy - two very different cultures are about to collide head-on.
