A German travels to Canada's west coast to commune with nature and experience local traditions. His fantasy of partaking in “ Indian ” culture leads him into a twisted rite of passage, abetted by his local guides, in this tension-filled dark comedy starring Tantoo Cardinal and Lorne Cardinal. Marie Clements leaves her viewer as unsettled as her protagonist in this clever cross-cultural tale.
