Plot Sypnosis:

The White Dawn tells the true tale of three sailors in 1896 who are separated from their ship during a hunt for polar bear and walrus. Eskimos who live on Baffin Island, just south of the North Pole, save their lives, but one angry sailor brings fear and violence to all. This astonishing Arctic adventure was helmed by Philip Kaufman, the acclaimed director of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Wanderers and The Right Stuff, with magnificent location footage by cinematographer Michael Chapman (Raging Bull) and a lush score by composer Henry Mancini (The Pink Panther).
