ALGONQUIN is the story of Jake, an unhappy school teacher whose childhood scars are not merely skin deep. Jake’s life is upended when his shifty, rogue of a father, Leif – an absentee parent and man whose best days as a travel writer are well past him – insists that Jake help him with his next project, a book about Algonquin Park. Agreeing to the arrangement, both arrive at the long-neglected family cabin in the woods, a tranquil backdrop to their fractious relationship. But bickering and bad feelings are soon cut short by an unexpected tragedy.
