In his final film Bill Mason takes us on a canoe odyssey to one of his favorite places, the north shore of Lake Superior. His love and concern for the land is reflected in his filming, as well as his on site sketching and painting. Quotes from great native leaders cause us to re-examine our relationship with the land and its creator. This is an environmental film of hope that grows out of Mason's deep spiritual beliefs. Bill considered this his masterpiece and wrestled with the editing of this film for years as the subject matter was so important to him. The result is a powerful, poignant film full of spectacular images that most of us would be considered lucky to ever experience first hand.
