Tommy Kudluk is a handyman who spends most of his time on the land. He keeps Inuit traditions alive by fishing and eating just like his ancestors did. After catching an Arctic char with a spear, he makes his wife an "ulu", a traditional knife used by Inuit women so that she can prepare the fish for the family to enjoy.
