Cast & Crew
Umluk, an Eskimo chief, falls into a crevice while hunting and is rescued by Dr. Wells, a distinguished Arctic explorer and scientist. Umluk returns to his igloo, where he finds Mike Burke, an ex-whaler who runs a trading post in partnership with Izzy Hawkins; Burke has been attempting to win the favor of Umluk's promised bride, a Russian half-breed Eskimo named Wamba, by giving her trinkets and treating her like a white woman. Umluk forces Burke to leave, but the trader returns later and takes the willing Wamba away with him, forcing Wamba's sister, Nootka, to go with them as their cook and drudge. Umluk learns from Hawkins just what has happened and gives chase to the party in a light sled. Umluk soon catches sight of the three travelers, but an unlucky accident to his sled prevents him from catching them. Umluk eventually finds them in a rough settlement, and, after trials and tribulations, returns to his icy home with the faithful Nootka, leaving the degraded Wamba behind.
