Map of the Human Heart is a compelling 1993 drama, using flashbacks to trace a story of love and belonging. In the Canadian Arctic, young Avik (Robert Joamie) is suffering from tuberculosis. A visiting mapmaker (Patrick Bergin), recognizing that Avik will be in danger without medical attention, takes Avik from his Inuit settlement. In Montreal, Avik becomes close friends with a girl in the hospital named Albertine (Annie Galipeau). Avik discovers that, just as he is half-white and half-Inuit, Albertine is half-white and half-Indian. When Avik is ready to return home to his Inuit family, he discovers that he no longer fits in. As a young man (Jason Scott Lee), Avik finds a place in society by fighting for Britain during World War II. He eventually encounters Albertine (Anne Parillaud) again, but she is now a beautiful young woman. The two feel a renewed spark of closeness, this time more than friendship. However, Avik learns that Albertine is romantically involved with the mapmaker who first took Avik to Montreal. The two young people must figure out where they stand in the world and with regards to one another.
