A hypnotic journey into the heart of the Inuit community around the North Pole, where breast milk has been found to contain high concentrations of PCBs. This highly pollutant chemical is no longer manufactured in the United States, but Inuit mothers transmit it to their children through their consumption of such traditional foods as seal meat. If they cease to eat such foods or to breastfeed their children, much of their cultural heritage will be lost.
