In the cold lands of the Arctic, a mother polar bear and her cubs break out of their winter den. As the cubs pounce and play, an inky raven tells tales of the magic of whalesong. The cubs are bewitched and, instead of following their mother home, they set out alone. "Where can we hear whalesong?" they ask the caribou, the walrus, the arctic fox. The cubs roam over land, and dive deep into an underwater world, on a poetic journey of discovery. A vivid portrait of the Arctic and its animals.
