About  ᑏᐊᐊᒻᒪᓗᐱᐅᔪᖅ - “TIA AND PIUJUQ”

 

Tia is a 10 year-old girl Syrian refugee who has recently moved to Montreal with her parents.
With her father taking classes and her sick mother confined to her bed, summer moves by
slowly for Tia, who struggles to make new friends. Her summer changes when she finds a
magic portal that transports her to the arctic tundra. Here she befriends Piujuq, an Inuk girl
of her age, camping with her grandmother. She starts making frequent trips, becoming more
confident through her adventures until strange things begin to occur, as if a mysterious force
is following her. When something or someone threatens Tia’s return, the girls immerse
themselves in a world of Inuit myth and magic, using all their bravery and smarts to bring Tia
home.
