Pt. 1. Cameras follow the men on a seal hunt. Each man tracks a seal breathing hole with his dogs and waits and kills it. The other men gather for a feast. Part. 2 depicts communal activities. In Pt. 3., a communal iglo is built, with individual alcoves; the men return to sealing and the women play with the children. Later, the men return with a seal and the flesh is divided among the family units. The dogs come in to eat the remnants and the men play games.
