Featuring the insights of three children (aged 10, 8 and 4); a family leaves the comforts of home to live for nine months in the remote wilderness of the Canadian North. They spend the long Yukon winter living in a small cabin with no road access, no electricity, no running water, no Internet and not a single watch or clock.
Director: Suzanne Crocker
Duration: 87 min
Suzanne Crocker, a Canadian filmmaker from the Yukon in northern Canada, switched careers from rural family physician to filmmaker in 2009. Over the years Dr. Crocker has been involved in various environmental pursuits mostly focused on zero waste as well as researching the health and social impacts of how we choose to use digital technology.
