Storyline

In the early years of the National Film Board of Canada before the rise of television, a major way for NFB films to be presented in small town Canada was through the movie showmen. This film follows the trials of one such showman as he travels around the rural areas to present a cinematic vision of the world people cannot otherwise see.
