SOL is a moving tribute to Solomon Tapatia Uyarasuk, a charismatic

young Inuk, an amateur acrobat, musician, and poet, who was found

dead in the Igloolik police station in 2012. He was 26. The police suggest

suicide, but two years after Solomon’s death, his family and friends are

still waiting for an official answer regarding the circumstances of his

death. This compassionate portrait examines the underlying issues of

youth suicide in Canada’s North while investigating the truth behind

Solomon’s tragic death.
