Tyler (Lulua), a young aspiring filmmaker, spends his days comedically documenting life on the Tl’etinqox Reserve where he lives, but everything changes when he meets the mysterious Aaron (Koostachin) who encourages him to tell a new kind of story. What starts out as a personal project about his family soon leads to the reveal of a shocking secret that threatens to unravel his life. 

A coming of age story that is often funny and surreal, this debut feature from director Trevor Mack is also a poignant look at the importance of family and being in touch with one’s ancestry.

Cast: Nathaniel Arcand (Plains Cree), William Magnus Lulua (​​Tsilhqot'in/Secwépemc/Cree), Asivak Koostachin (Cree/Inuk), Pauline Bob-King (Tsilhqot'in)
