The group arrives in Muskrat Dam, one of several fly-in reserves in Northern Ontario. Most Canadians do not understand why people continue to live in remote places like this one. Their stay will open the group's eyes about why relocating isn't an option for the families whose families have been here for generations. They will also hear about the impact of the legacy of residential schools, including a firsthand story of a man who watched his younger brother be taken away in a plane, before having the same happen to himself.
