What happens when an eclectic group of women from Toronto- all strangers- head off into the wilds of Temagami for a canoe trip? This film brings together 5 very different, very lovable women for whom this adventure represents personal challenges and opportunities. How this group of mostly novice adventurers accomplish the trip with limited outdoor experience but massive life skills and huge doses of humour provides fascinating social commentary to a genre which has been dominated by male perspectives.
