The Country of Wolves (Amaqqut Nunaat) is a traditional Inuit story about two brothers who find themselves adrift on broken sea ice while out hunting for seal. They drift in the darkness for many days, until the ice they are on settles on the shore of a strange and distant land. The hunters begin to look for landmarks or people to help them find their way back home.

Eventually, they come to a camp and the two brothers split up to find help. The younger brother goes to the large communal igloo, where music and merriment can be heard. The older brother walks to a small igloo at the edge of the camp. Here he finds a strange old woman who is surprised to see him. She identifies him as human and tells him that he is in the Country of Wolves. She warns him of danger, but says it is too late for his brother. From this land, almost no one returns…
