Frostfire (TV Movie) (1994)

After the suicide of a boarder friend, his bother fetches the depressed Nelson Nagarauk home to their tradition-conscious Eskimo family at 69' north. Brandon persuades him to accompany him on a ice-bear hunt, but Nelson turns around soon. On his way back he finds a half-frozen Russian woman from a near-by weather station. He warms her up, but she seems to be very sick otherwise. The next day she's taken away from a helicopter without a word of thank. Later in TV, a different, healthy, woman is shown. What has really happened? With Nelson's help, the ambitious journalist Virginia Ranks starts an investigation, in which Nelson is not only confronted with a military intrigue, but also with his traditional roots, which he ridiculed before.
