A look at the competitive sport of lumberjacking, its history, its people, its growing diversity, and how logging has uniquely defined the Midwest for over the past century.

A Cut Above is not the first film Kate Houle has worked on, but it is her debut as a writer, director, and producer. Kate wears many hats and has pursued many dreams, but making film and television is what she is meant to be doing. She is finally being brave and doing it!
