Le 23e film de l’ONF à être nommé aux Oscars®

Court métrage inspiré du roman de Holling C. Holling. Extraordinaire odyssée d'un minuscule canot sculpté par un petit garçon autochtone du beau pays Nipigon qui rêvait d'un voyage impossible et lointain. Un commentaire poétique, des images fraîches, merveilleusement présentes, évoquent à ravir le rêve ingénu de l'enfant et les aventures émouvantes de Vogue sillonnant les eaux du pays des hommes.
