    Sam Dunn is a 30-year-old anthropologist. He’s also a lifelong metal fan. After years of studying diverse cultures, Sam turns his academic eye a little closer to home and embarks on an epic journey into the heart of heavy metal. His mission: to figure out why metal music is consistently stereotyped, dismissed and condemned, even while the tribe that loves it stubbornly holds its ground – spreading the word, keeping the faith, and adopting styles and attitudes that go way beyond the music. Sam visits heavy metal landmarks as far flung as L.A.’s Sunset Strip, the dirty streets of Birmingham, and the dark forests of Norway. Along the way, the two sides of Sam Dunn – curious anthropologist and rabid fan – collide, as Sam explores metal’s obsession with sex, religion, violence and death, meets his heroes, and discovers some things about the culture that even he can’t defend. Part social document, part celebration of a misunderstood art form, this documentary is the first of its kind: a chance for metal fans to speak out and a window into a culture that’s far more complex than it seems.

Quickly, a suspicious fire forces Jos back to the logging camps; the notary Boisjoli is circling around the beautiful Liza… and winter is coming. The worksite seems cursed and, having had no word from her beloved, worry starts to ravage Liza. Will Jos make it back from the logging camp and escape the sinister forces that seem to be plaguing the site? His final hope, his only hope might just be in the bewitched canoe…for one final wild run.
