Cree artist Jesse Gouchey paints a large-scale frame-by-frame animation of a young man’s journey through the justice system, and his physical, mental, and spiritual struggle to return to his son. His journey is contrasted by a haunting poem by spoken word artist Mitcholos Touchie that speaks to the impacts of the colonial system.
Jesse painted the film over a period of 7 years in numerous outdoor locations in Alberta and BC.
