Set in the early 2000s, On the Fringe of Wild is a bittersweet romance about two young men who fall in love under harsh circumstances.
Peter (Harrison Browne) is a sensitive and shy teen who dreams of leaving his small northern Ontario town to pursue life as an artist. Unfortunately, his homophobic father (Andrew Bee) intends to “make him a man” instead. Sending him on a hunting trip one cold winter break, tensions run high and Peter runs away.
Lost, cold and reaching his breaking point, Peter meets Jack (Cameron Stewart), a kindred spirit who is also desperate to escape his toxic family situation. A romance quickly develops between the two teenage boys as they hide away in a secluded cabin, discovering each other and themselves. But the world outside eventually pulls them back and they’re soon stuck facing the circumstances they tried to so desperately flee.
