Coming of Age, Drama
In this coming-of-age road movie, Link is a downtrodden but feisty teenager, his bleached-blonde hair a testimony to his estrangement from his Mi'kmaq indigenous Canadian roots. He escapes from an abusive father, setting out with his little half-brother in search of a mother who had abandoned him. On the road they meet Pasmay, a dancer who performs in pow wows, gatherings in which Native American people honor their centuries-old cultures. Pasmay too is estranged from his family, due to their rejection of his sexual identity. As the boys travel through the Mi'kmaq territories of Nova Scotia, Link’s hardened character thaws in learning about self-acceptance and his heritage. A journey of growth, raw but tender and full of hope, exploring topics including family, love and relationships, and LGBTQ+ issues.
