This short film from Ben Weiland profiles Ted Grant operates the Nahanni Mountain Lodge, which is located in the heart of the Northwest Territories. In a day where connectedness permeates just about everything, Grant makes a strong case for escaping the pull of cell phones and Internet and getting out to see the world.
