On Mitzi Bearclaw’s 25th birthday, she’s asked to come back home to her reserve from her life designing hats in downtown Toronto to see her sick mother. As Mitzi reconnects with the land, her family and the infinitely quirky residents of Owl Island, she grows from resentful and restless to reconnecting and embracing the charm of her home through encounters with three spirits. When your spiritual guides are space travelers and their enemies are apocalyptic soothsayers, it’s easy to keep your feet on the ground.

Presented in partnership with Idea Exchange and Cambridge Art Galleries.

It’s everything from a feminist coming-of-age story, a spiritual journey to a “truthful archive” – Aruna Dutt, CBC News Network
