Putting food sovereignty to the test in the far North of Canada.
Filmmaker Suzanne Crocker, living just 300 km from the Arctic Circle, removes absolutely all grocery store food from her house. For one year, she feeds her family of five, the only food that can be hunted, fished, gathered, grown or raised around Dawson City, Yukon.
Add three skeptical teenagers, one reluctant husband, no salt, no caffeine, no sugar and -40 temperatures.
Ultimately the story becomes a celebration of community and the surprising bounty of food that even a tiny community in the far North can provide.
“Inspirational! Suzanne Crocker’s amazing experiment shows that even in the far north with strong individual, family and community effort, local food can feed us year-round.”
