The health, well-being and balance of the ancient Inuit and their communities are mirrored in the life and health of Sedna, the goddess of the sea. The shaman must go into a trance and must travel to the bottom of the sea to encounter Sedna and attempt to put her house in order. He risks his life in doing this. The shaman is shown unravelling Sedna’s hair, releasing the demons and bringing back order to her world. When order is achieved, she releases the sea creatures and the people’s lives become balanced once more.
