Tomomi on the FarmWhen Tomomi loses her job in Vancouver due to COVID-19, she and her husband move to his parents' elk farm in Saskatchewan in the middle of winter. NOW STREAMING ON CBC GEM
Tomomi Kato works as a sushi chef at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, while her husband Craig works in the city’s film industry. When they both lose their jobs in the span of a few days, Craig suggests they travel to Saskatchewan to stay on his parents’ farm. They can help plant a garden and work with the elk.
When they arrive, they’re greeted by -15 C temperatures and a metre of snow.
Tomomi has never experienced a Canadian winter. So begins her journey — months in frigid, rural Saskatchewan, a place she hardly knows.
