In the wild north, six young guys embarked on an epic adventure – to explore some of the most remote and untouched rivers in North America. Four Canadians, two Kiwis, two dogs (Zephyr & Taiger), three boats and two hundred pounds of camera equipment on a 63 day mission – it was always going to be a mighty test of endurance, determination and friendship. 

But beyond the swarming mosquitoes, technical challenges and physical hardship, what they didn’t expect was the impact of the stories from one First Nations family. This chance encounter introduced them to people so tightly tied to the land and the river that they live on, and the discovery that all of it is under threat from mining. 

A boys-own adventure turns into a mission to truly discover the secrets of the north and show the world why some places are worth preserving.
