14-year-old Ella is determined to travel the length of the Inside Passage by kayak, along the shores of the Great Bear Rainforest in order to testify against a proposed pipeline that would see oil tanker traffic traveling through her beloved homeland waters. She’s prepared to handle all of the challenges the wildlife, the weather, the water, and her gear have to offer up. But the greatest challenge of all is that she has to bring her dysfunctional family with her. Her neurotic aunt, her cranky uncle, her wayward cousin, as well as the memory of her late uncle all come along for the ride making it a fun and amazing adventure. From Tla’Amin to Klemtu, BC, this family navigates their blend of cultures and desires, while their spirits honour the coast as a place for each of us to call home and to protect.
