Ella (Ta'kaiya Blaney), 14, has decided to travel the length of the Inside Passage, along the shores of the Great Bear Rainforest from Tla'Amin to Klemtu, B.C. by kayak in order to protest a proposed pipeline that would see oil tankers going through her beloved homeland waters. She's prepared to handle all of the challenges the wildlife, the weather, the water, and her gear have to offer up.
But what will be the most challenging of all is that she has to bring her dysfunctional family with her. Her neurotic aunt, her cranky uncle, her wayward cousin, and the memory of her late uncle all come along for the ride to make it a fun and amazing adventure.
