A traditional, slow, strenuous and all female adventure. Forty days spent canoe tripping in the Canadian wilderness with twelve young women, nine of whom are teenagers. There’s only one thing we know for sure, these girls won’t see each other at best. Think bug-bitten, cold and boob-deep in muskeg bog while carrying an incredibly heavy canoe on their heads. A counter-cultural summer spent exploring their physical surroundings and inner selves free from mainstream society’s expectations.
