Summary

Mysterious...rugged...beautiful - Lake Superior - the largest fresh water body of water in the world. Georgian Bay - home to thousands of islands draped in rich history. Combined, their coasts stretch for over 4000 kilometers to form some of the most dramatic and beautiful landscapes in Canada. Experience an intimate journey into this magnificent region through the eyes of an artist compelled to capture on canvas this remarkable land. Along with his young family, Cory Trépanier spent almost a month in each season exploring and painting this magnificent wilderness by canoe and kayak, on foot and by snowshoe. Filmed over the entirety of the excursions, this documentary explores the creative process in the first person, bringing the viewer into the artist's mind as he paints from the land, and from his canoe, on location. It shares the adventure of exploring and creating in these challenging environments, and the rewards of taking children into the wilderness, exposing them to fragile and important ecosystems. This timeless, inspiring story will leave viewers with a greater appreciation for our environment, our families, and of course art, as they embark on a journey through an artist's eyes, words and paintings.
