On the Brink speaks to the powerful role of Lake Ontario as a place of encounter between cultures and as a border and barrier to movement. Adrift on the water, swimming against the current, travelers finally set foot on land. Do they forget what they’ve left behind? Searching for belonging, they shake off the old world and step into the new. (
