Set in the Alaskan Subarctic, The Sun At Midnight tells the story of an unusual friendship between a hunter obsessed with finding a missing caribou herd and a teenage rebel who gets lost while on the run. In the wake of her mother’s death, Lia, a 16 year-old urban princess, is sent to spend the summer with her Gwich’in grandmother in a small Subarctic community.

When Alfred is severely wounded in a bear attack Lia pushes on and fights to save both of their lives.
