Filmmaker Brigitte Berman turns her lens to the in-depth story of the multi-award-winning irrepressible actor and raconteur Gordon Pinsent.  In this gripping feature documentary, Pinsent will relive his stories at the major crossroads of his life and through motion capture technology we will show Gordon, the older actor, interacting with the younger versions of himself, all performed by Pinsent.

Filled with humour, passion and complexity, the film will not only tell the story of Gordon Pinsent, but will tell a universal story about the human condition in a format that makes creative use of state of the art technology.
