In this moving documentary, Canadian screen icon Gordon Pinsent takes audiences on an emotional journey through his illustrious 70-year career. It is the real story behind Gordon's early years and the life he has shared with his wife Charm (Charmion King) — how they met, how they fell in love, and how she helped him reconcile his past.

Set partially along the gorgeous coastline of Gordon's homeland, Newfoundland, the film is also a figurative love letter to Victor Solnicki, director Brigitte Berman's husband, who passed away on the film's TIFF premiere in September 2016.
