My Canadian Adventure - The Quest for the Lost Gold

Niels Nørløv Hansen, Denmark, 2015

90 min.DK/FeatureChildren''s films, Family films

The children find an old photo of a man with a beard and gold prospector equipment. The man turns out to be their great-grandfather, who immigrated to Canada many years ago to become a gold prospector. This excites the children and they manage to get in touch with their great-aunt Anna, who invites them to Canada for a visit. It turns out that there is a story of an old gold mine and a treasure map. Soon, the kids catch the gold fever and search for the treasure, which may still be hidden in the mine that has remained untouched for over fifty years. On their way to find the mine, the Canadian wilderness, nature, animals and two suspicious gold prospectors, who want their hands on the treasure, surprise them.
