Desperate to get a great mark on her 150 year anniversary presentation of Ottawa, Gauri sneaks into her dad’s time machine with a boy from her class and travels back to 1867. Problems quickly unfold, leaving the two Grade five students trapped in the unforgiving elements of winter, struggling to stay alive. In 2017, Canada turns 150 years old.
