In Quebec during the early 1930s, young poet Félix Leclerc befriended Frank Randolph Macpherson, a Jamaican-born chemical engineer. A jazz fan, and a university graduate who worked for a pulp and paper company, Macpherson inspired Leclerc, who wrote a song about the log drives. Leclerc, through his poetry, transformed his friend Macpherson into a log driver who dance on logs. Between documentary and fiction, MacPherson depicts turning points in history, and with great sensitivity, captures in lavis images the deep feelings shared by the Jamaican engineer and one of the poet’s sisters.
