Described by director KC Carthew (The Sun at Midnight) as “Mad Max in the Arctic”, the film follows Sumi, a young girl raised by a polar bear who sets out on a perilous journey across the frozen winter wasteland to evade capture from a brutal hunting party.

Set in 2144 against the harsh backdrop of a frozen wasteland, Sumi, a human child raised by Mama Polar Bear, narrowly escapes capture from a brutal Morad hunting party and sets out across the vast winter landscape.

Polaris features a cast that includes Viva Lee, Khamisa Wilsher, Muriel Dutil and Agee.
