Adam spends the summer with his parents at the Lake Superior, at the frontier between the United States and Canada.

Andrew Cividino
Born in Dundas, Canada in 1983, Andrew Cividino studies cinema at the University of Ryerson before directing two short films, including We ate the children last (2011), which won the Best Canadian First Feature Film at the Vancouver International Film Festival, followed by Yellow Fish (2013). In 2015, he writes and directs his first feature film, Sleeping Giant, a runner-up in the International Critics’ Week in Cannes that same year.
