In Partnership with OPIRG

Not another “broken prison” film, this collaboration is a “broken society” film—an ambitious and inspired rebuild of our community from the inside out. By exploring alternatives to prison through the eyes of women behind bars and empowering them to reimagine their lives through artistic practices, the film compels viewers to examine why we imprison the most vulnerable among us, and at what cost.

At the far-flung edge of Canada’s boreal forest, outside the tiny sub-Arctic town of Dawson City, Yukon, a handful of unlikely farmers are growing everything from snow-covered Brussels sprouts to apples. These modern-day agrarians have carved out small patches of fertile soil in an otherwise unforgiving expanse of isolated wilderness to make a living and a life.
