On a hot summer’s day, Chase “Superman” Duffy is taking lunch to his grandfather who is scouting his Alberta canola farm when, dehydrated, he over exerts — and blacks out!

When he wakes up, he is transported to the past where he meets Mr. Slovonuk from Shellbrook, Saskatchewan, the farmer who first brought rapeseed from Poland to Canada.
