A Year. A Game. An Island.
The early 1970s marked the beginning of Newfoundland’s
cultural renaissance. And in 1974, amidst the music, literature, and burgeoning
patriotic pride, a young, upstart Reach for the Top team from Canada’s newest
province has eliminated competitors from across the country, setting the stage
for a showdown with the defending champions in the final match.
In GAME, Joan Sullivan tracks the signs of a culture coming
into its own, and the team that held the entire island in rapt attention.
