The film focuses on the son learning survival skills in the Yukon’s arctic wilderness.

Docu is helmed by Andrew Walton,and produced by Dallas Brennan Rexer and Elizabeth Mandel for Arts Engine.

Film will preem at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival in North Carolina Sunday, followed by screenings at IFP Independents Night at the Lincoln Center, the Boston Independent Film Festival and a Canadian preem at the Hot Docs Film Festival in Toronto.
