A cryptic message brings Dave, a young Innu man living in Montréal, back to his reserve for the first time since his adoption. Instead of a joyful family reunion, he unearths a painful past scarred by secrets and lies. Despite his ancestral ties to the First Nation, Dave experiences an identity crisis and struggles to understand his family, his community and his feelings for Osalic, a young woman destined for tragedy. Yves Sioui Durand’s remarkable debut feature is a bold adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet set on an Innu community in Quebec, and a courageous portrayal of one man’s journey to understanding.
Preceded by short film Kirkcaldy Man (18m) directed by Julian Schwanitz, joint winner of the Glasgow Short Film Festival Scottish Audience Award 2012.
