"Canadian filmmaker and mother of two, Alison MacLean, risked her life on the front lines to make Outside the Wire, a documentary spotlighting female Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan. When the Canadian government decided not to support the film, Alison found support from a 92 year-old veteran. $3000 was scrounged up for her flight, $10,000 in gear was generously donated from a Richmond Manufacturing company and the only thing left to do was write her will. But that meant having “the chat” first with her kids. Not something most of us have to do before heading to work, that’s for sure."
