After traveling the globe as part of a film series, two experienced mountain skiers and a filmmaker return back to where they come from – British Columbia.

On this three-week adventure, they boat, bushwhack, ski and packraft across the spine of B.C.’s Coast Mountains. While the wild peaks, rivers and glaciers makes this film easy to watch, one big question dominates the story – what is home?

A diverse cast of individuals, including a German émigré and a First Nations elder, help the team better understand what home means.
