Old Crow is a tiny Gwich'in village in the Yukon, 80 miles north of the Arctic Circle. After more than 20 years apart a father and son, Stanley Senior and Stanley Junior, are reunited. As their very different lives come together in surprising and familiar ways, the film broadens out to take in the complex relationship between tradition and modernity, popular culture and nature, dependence and self-reliance.
