In 1845, 19-year-old Israel Shevenell left his home in Canada and walked nearly 200 miles to Biddeford, Maine. He found work and built a new life in an American boomtown being transformed by the Industrial Revolution, and is recognized as the city’s first permanent French-Canadian settler. In 2015, his 74-year-old great-great-grandson, Ray Shevenell, retraced the pioneering journey, walking from Compton, Quebec to Biddeford. Tonya Shevenell tells their stories in her first documentary film, an exploration of family, history, and identity – and how a journey into the unexpected inevitably leads to home.
