Summary
Six Days. Five Inmates. One Guard. Traversing the vast, serene wilderness in Northern Saskatchewan, a group of prisoners sets out on a six day canoe trip. Quinn, an inmate trustee, has been recruited for the pilot project meant to physically and emotionally challenge a small set of inmates about to be released after long terms inside for violent crimes. Their leader, Leggett, only thinks he's in charge. Inviting along a new parole officer, Martha, and her teenage son, Brian, is just the first of his mistakes. An insect plague of biblical proportions has taken over the north country, and the inmates have always had a secret plan. The river quickly becomes a place of reckoning. Except for Quinn, the prisoners reject any hope for rehabilitation. By the end of day six, the men find themselves grappling with violence, mutiny, and a plot to harvest and sell drugs down the river, all of which echoes off the incessant buzzing that surrounds them as millions of mysterious insects follow along in the forest, destroying anything they come across - plants, animals, even humans{u2026}A Place You'll Never Be is a story of external action and internal redemption. The injured Quinn is forced to evolve, facing his past, and along with Martha and Brian, they all must find the strength to survive as they race to the end of the river

Summary
Organized as a pilot project, a prison counsellor takes five inmates on a six-day "pre-release canoe trip" through the vast, serene wilderness in Northern Saskatchewan. By the end of day six, the group finds themselves grappling with a plot to harvest and sell drugs down the river, mutiny, and violence, all of which plays out against the incessant buzzing that surrounds them as thousands of mysterious insects follow along in the forest, destroying anything they come across--plants, animals, even humans.
