JAKE, an unengaged high school teacher, reunites with his estranged father, LEIF, who is a famed but washed up travel adventure writer. Leif offers Jake the chance to co-author what he claims will be his master piece; a book about Algonquin Park. Struck by Leif”s sudden death, and haunted by the unlucky image of an upside down horseshoe nailed to a tree nearly 20 years ago, Jake decides to go back to Algonquin to reverse the horseshoe’s direction and ultimately finish the book. When Jake returns to the park, he discovers that Leif has left the family cabin to his mistress, CARMEN, and their love child, IGGY. Despite himself, Jake grows increasingly attracted to Carmen, and agrees to have Iggy join his quest to satisfy her wishes. During their adventure Jake and Iggy develop a brotherly bond and come to terms with the loss of their father.
