In the snowy Northern wilderness, one of the coldest places on Earth, Nanook and Sedna live isolated from the rest of humanity. Each day for them is a difficult one, as their traditional way of life erodes, and the environment becomes more and more unpredictable with the ice melting earlier each year. Their only connection to the outside world is Chena, who visits them regularly, and updates them on their estranged daughter, Ága. Sedna longs to see her daughter again, despite her partner's stubborn refusal. Eventually, a long journey ensues in the hope of a reunion. Lazarov and his superb cinematographer take full advantage of the dramatic snowy landscape in this captivating tale.
Ága emerges as a winning combination of the cozily intimate and the sublimely epic. – The Hollywood Reporter
