150 years into the future the province of Nova Scotia has mostly been abandoned by settler descendants, leaving behind a legacy of abandoned buildings and homes. As the Mi’kmaw People reclaim their territory and work to remove the toxic technology left behind, a documentary film crew is invited into the community to witness the process of healing and the creation of new relationships with the land and animals.
Bretten Hannam is a filmmaker of Mi'kmaw, Ojibwe, and Scottish ancestry based in Kespukwitk, Mi’kma’ki (Nova Scotia). His films deal with themes of community, culture, and tradition with a focus on Two Spirit identity. He is a Fellow of the Praxis Centre for Screenwriters, Outfest Screenwriting Lab, and the Canadian Film Centre’s Screenwriting Lab.
