Based on a true story, this lovely film is only available in this fairly poor quality recording - but that takes nothing away from the tale. Innocent young man goes to deepest country Canada from Toronto in the 20's to teach at the village school. He encounters harsh conditions that are really beyond his imagination. The dower community treat him in the same hard way they treat each other. Nevertheless he succeeds to complete his 1st year - and we are told at the end he goes back for two further years. I laughed and cried and really enjoyed the film.
