1 An Inuit, hunting. He is in a hunting pose, and there are 2 dead polar bears beside him.
2 A man appears beside him. It is an RCMP officer. He shakes his head.
3 The Inuit doesn’t understand. The officer gives him a piece of paper. The Inuit puts it in his pocket.
4 The officer leaves and the Inuit keeps on hunting. This time, he’s hunting beluga whales.
5 The officer comes back, and shakes his head. The Inuit takes the paper from his pocket and holds it out.
6 The officer shakes his head and gives him another piece of paper.
7 The scene fades in, and we see the same Inuit getting a piece of paper from a nurse.
8 The scene fades in, and we see the same Inuit getting a square house with a chimney, along with a piece of paper, from a bureaucrat.
9 The scene fades in, and we see the same Inuit getting a piece of paper from a priest.
10 The scene fades in, and we see the same Inuit, thinking (he is sitting in an armchair in his house). He thinks about a time before he had any pieces of paper, when he had a number of dead caribou beside him.
11 His thoughts are interrupted by his daughter, who hands him a piece of paper. It is her report card from school.
