Long métrage documentaire relatant le périple d’une famille sur 5 000 km – trekking, navigation, portage et aviron – des Prairies aux Maritimes, alors qu’ils partent à l’aventure à la rencontre de Farley Mowat. Lorsque Karsten Heuer et Leanne Allison (Vivre comme les caribous), accompagnés de Zev, leur fils de deux ans, et de leur indomptable chien Willow, décident de retracer le parcours littéraire de ce célèbre écrivain canadien, ce n’est nullement une figure de style!
