On a supply-laden motorboat, Suzanne and Gerard, their 3 children, 2 cats and a dog move deep into the Canadian forest. In a cabin with no electricity, internet or mobiles and, chiefly, no clock, they explore being together naturally – in homey isolation, cut off from distracting civilisation by a frozen river for 9 months. They learn to work together, to listen to each other, to enjoy the present, and to patiently and creatively make do with what they have. Nothing tempts them away; there’s nowhere to run; despite hardship they enjoy the best time of their lives. The idea was Suzanne’s and she made the film, which breathes with newly found love, playfulness, and the inner peace of the whole family.
