Emery Prometer is an itinerant bush worker living in a logging community in a rural area of the Ottawa Valley. He doesn't make enough money to support his large family but he is too proud to except government handouts and thus his family must endure the hardships. Despite the isolation and deprivation, his family has nothing but compassion for his tough self-reliance and hard-drinking lifestyle. Eventually his oldest daughter Rosie decides she must break the cycle of poverty by leaving home, getting an education and then a job for a better future. Written by
An excellent movie to watch if you have ever been to the Ottawa Valley. The part with the daughter going to work for Bell was really good because women actually do that there. Very pragmatic. I loved the scene with all of the kids going into the back of the truck, it may seem like a bit much, but some people like to have a tonne of children, but the daughter was right, no point havin' kids when you could be in Ottawa working for Bell. 160 Elgin Street, it's ok.
