Within the ancient Precambrian rock of Northern Canada sits one of the largest reserves of uranium on the planet. A power that has yielded the largest destructive energy known to man, which is also manifest in the region's harsh natural glory. A gothic travelogue that summons dialogue with the ghosts of the region; abandoned mining towns swallowed within the pandemonium of extraction commerce and neglect, and also the liminal unknown forces that inhabit these lands and speak in shadow memories.
