Portrait of Chase Perley, a young man living in Tobique First Nation. Chase acts as tour guide showcasing Tobique with anecdotes about his neighbours, his friends and the many well-known dogs that roam around his community, interspersing these stories with at times humourous, at times deeply personal accounts of his experiences with adolescent bullying and the people, places and activities that contribute to his resilience.
