The setting for this drama is a logging community, focusing on a man who chooses the unfettered life and uncertain income of an itinerant bush worker, even though it means that his family lives poorly as a result. The film is a study of the effects on family life of isolation and deprivation. Features a wonderful performance from a young Margot Kidder.

Ce film contient des scènes de nudité et/ou de sexualité. Pour public averti.

    From early in the film I wondered when the dramatic or tragic ending would unfold but it never did and never was. It was instead a marvellous impression of life in the woods, a life that Thoreau might be proud of. (An Australian film lover)

    I was 10 when this was filmwed and I can remember everyone talking about the movie being filmed in front of the old beer store on mainstreet in Renfrew (now a parking lot beside the grocery store). I grew up spending time in Calabogie and Matawachan and points in between. My mother worked with Joan Finnigan's sister and she was well know in Renfrew, I have a number of her books, signed. I like to see this every now and then to remind myself of my childhood home and it is really representative of the geography and characters that inhabited the local areas.

    I truly enjoyed this film when it was on TV, eons ago. It was partially filmed at my Uncles Hunt Camp near Calabogie. My Aunts and one Uncle thought it was scandalous. What a laugh. The fight at the dance was well done and was very typical of the area at that time. Well done, indeed.

    I enjoyed this film very much. Not what I expected from Joan Finnegan. Well acted drama I would like to visit again every now and then.
