Video Synopsis

Even though I live in a big city, part of me wants to be able to live off the land, to be a survivalist, and teach Zoe, my daughter, the importance of having a connection to the earth. So we decided to go camping in the wild west coast of Vancouver Island: Tofino, BC. It didn’t work out quite as planned.
