This film is a heartful story from the perspective of a father, who’s 10-year-old son lived an adventure filled life but passed away in 2019. In 24 Leeches, he narrates a family canoe adventure to the Slate Islands of Ontario, Canada and reflects on camping, the changing climate of our Earth, and especially his beloved Lake Superior.
One part family adventure, one part environmental film, 24 Leeches is also a tribute to a father’s best friend and adventure partner. He aches to know what his son would have become and for him, finishing the film was incredibly painful but also cathartic as he came to realize how special their time was together.
