"Freely inspired" by Naomi Fontaine’s novel, Myriam Verreault tells the story of two best friends in an Innu community. While Mikuan (Sharon Fontaine-Ishpatao) has a loving family, Shaniss (Yamie Grégoire) is picking up the pieces of her shattered childhood. As children, they promised each other to stick together no matter what. But as they near adulthood, their friendship is shaken when Mikuan falls for a white boy, and starts dreaming of leaving the reserve that’s now too small for her dreams.
