In 1534, an Inuit widow, Huumittuq, has a strange dream. The next day, she discovers an orphaned polar bear cub and – somewhat to the alarm of her community – adopts it. Over the next 500 years, the bear encounters many other humans, scientists and entrepreneurs, and the passengers and crew of an Arctic cruise ship, who finally – and fatally – fulfill the mysterious vision that came to Huumittuq half a millennium earlier. THE BREATHING HOLE intersects with Canada’s history from the moment of First Contact to a future ravaged by climate change.
