Summary
Embarking on a more than 3,000-kilometer walking journey from rural Canada to the East coast so that she can see the ocean for the first time in her life, Etta, an octogenarian woman, has experiences that blur her perspectives between illusion, memory and reality. While she's gone her husband Otto deals with his own demons, Russell pursues love, and James does James
Summary
82-year-old Etta has never seen the ocean. Early one morning she takes a rifle, some chocolate, and her best boots, and begins walking the 3,232 kilometres from rural Saskatchewan to Halifax. Her husband wakes to a note left on the kitchen table; his oldest friend, who has loved Etta from afar for 60 years, insists on finding her, wherever she's gone.
