Sumi, a young girl, has been raised by her adoptive polar bear mother in a post-apocalyptic world where the conditions are harsh and the occupants even harsher. When an encounter with a roving band of warrior women sees Sumi separated from her mother, she’ll use her wits and her skills to enact a bloody escape and leave a trail of blood across the frozen wasteland as she tries to find her mother. K.C. Carthew’s POLARIS is a full-blooded battle cry of a film bringing together an incredibly game cast, a real (!) polar bear and the most brutal post-apocalyptic world we have encountered since Fury Road’. With only non-verbal communication and no technology, this brutal world is also home to some incredible characters which Sumi encounters on her journey, enacting change step by step. So strap in and enjoy this unique, original and absolutely brilliant science fiction epic that’ll burn across the screen and light up the way like the north star Sumi follows.
