Abstract This documentary is about one of Canada's most important woman of letters. A visual and intellectual delight, this film is a tribute to the highly acclaimed literary works and fascinating life of Gabrielle Roy. Gabrielle Roy was a fiercely independent woman who defied her destiny and broke gender boundaries in post-war Canada. She was a modern writer and reporter ahead of her time. Award-winning director Léa Pool captures the fragility and greatness of Gabrielle Roy's life by travelling to the places that served as a backdrop for her singular journey.
