ARCTIC STORIES

It's 1958, and this is going to be an eventful year in the life of ten-year-old Agatha. The last thing she expects is to become a hero, but heroism awaits: she saves her community from a monstrous flying object, befriends the birds of her northern home, and rescues a skating priest who has ventured onto thin ice.
