Lovesick explores the changing landscape of a small Canadian lake through the stories of the people who live on its shores. Lovesick Lake is one of the smallest bodies of water along the Trent-Severn canal system – a waterway that connects Lake Huron to Lake Ontario. Once a prosperous region used by Canada’s First Nations people for hunting and fishing, Lovesick Lake is now a popular cottage destination. Shoreline development has increased exponentially while the health of the lake and surrounding land has declined. Lovesick compels viewers to ask, “At what cost does Canada’s cottage country come at?”
