Algonquin

Jake, a bored high school teacher, reunites with his estranged father, Leif, who is a once famed but washed up travel adventure writer. Leif offers Jake the chance to coauthor what he claims will be his master piece; a book about Algonquin Park. Struck by Leif’s sudden death, Jake decides to go back to Algonquin to finish the book. Upon Jake's return to Algonquin he discovers that Leif has left the family cabin to his mistress, Carmen, and their love child, Iggy. Despite himself, Jake grows increasingly fond of the new found family, and agrees to have Iggy join him in on a quest to find a secret from his past. Their adventure allows Jake and Iggy to develop a brotherly bond and come to terms with the loss of their father.
