Set against the wilds of the Canadian Nova Scotia landscape, Wildhood is the beautiful and captivating odyssey of a closeted First Nations youth in search of identity and belonging.
 

Under the watchful eye of his abusive white father, impulsive two-spirit Mi'kmaw teen Link spends most of his time taking care of younger half-brother, Travis. But when Link discovers his supposedly-dead mother may be alive, the pair set out to find her. Along the way they connect with pow wow dancer and drifter Pasmay. As Link reclaims his heritage and connection to the land, he and Pasmay find themselves irresistibly drawn to one another. A beautiful and captivating drama about empowerment and self-discovery.

"Wildhood combines the foundation of heartrending coming-of-age narratives with the feel-good elements of road trip flicks to create a delicate, not to mention visually appealing, sophomore film." - The Hollywood Reporter
