Isolation in northern Quebec, like for Martha in Aupaluk, Nunavik (population 200), is ordinary.

She’s 16, and her best friend lives 80 kilometers away, with no roads in between. Her school feels empty to her, but she likes the calm. She paints in bright colours, alone in a classroom, dreaming of college, and wondering about having children herself. At home she sews parkas. In the arid cold, she walks the frozen bay.

Spring is coming.
