An experiment to prepare Indigenous people for city life, through a program of vocational and academic education carried out with families who were moved to the town of Elliot Lake in northern Ontario from neighbouring reserves. The film listens in on classes and discussions, and interviews some families who stayed, some who went back. It offers insight into the sort of adjustments that Indigenous People face in this kind of 'programmed' integration.
