SOL explores the death of a young Inuk man, Solomon Tapatiaq Uyarasuk, who is found dead in a Royal Canadian Mounted Police detachment in a remote Inuit community. The locals suspect murder, but the police suggest suicide. As the documentary investigates Solomon’s death, it sheds light on the underlying social issues of Canada’s North, a region with one of the highest youth suicide rates in the world. The film explores how the pain of suicide has affected the people in these small communities, their resilience and their efforts to create a better future for their people.
