After being orphaned in the middle of a harsh Montreal winter, teenager Fern
resolves to avoid her mother’s tragic fate – by becoming a millionaire. "All you
need to do is save," according to the book How to become a Millionaire. So, with
Youth Protection at her heels, she lies to get a job first as a live-in janitor and
then another as a dishwasher, saving whatever she finds along the way. But
despite all her smarts and fierce determination, Fern's house of cards beings to
crumble, until she realizes that she may not be as alone as she once thought.
Based on the young adult novel by Edeet Ravel, starring the newly discovered Imajyn Cardinal,
The Saver was written, edited and directed by award-winning filmmaker Wiebke von Carolsfeld (Marion Bridge, Stay).
