Wood On Water is the story of a 40-day, traditional, strenuous and all-female adventure. The canoe trip takes place in the Canadian wilderness with 12 young women, nine of whom are teenagers. There’s only one thing we know for sure; these girls won’t see each other at their best. Think bug-bitten, cold and chest-deep in muskeg bog while carrying incredibly heavy canoes on their heads. It’s a counter-culture summer, spent exploring physical surroundings and inner selves free from mainstream society’s expectations.
