Hayat, an expert sailor in the Arctic navigates far from humans and her family's past in France. But when her little sister Leila gives birth to baby girl, Inaya, their worlds are turned upside down. We witness their journey guided by the polar star, to overcome the family's fate. A deeply moving and overlapping portrait of two sisters who couldn’t be more different, Polaris takes a resolutely political stance on the status of women in the world of sailing. A veritable voyage, both physically and emotionally.
