This slow-burn short film creeps up on you as the young woman goes about her day. While working at the community radio station, she recounts and tries to impart a lesson from a Nlaka’pamux tale of the Boy and the Owl.


Jade Baxter was born and raised in the Nlaka’pamux Nation in the interior of British Columbia. Being of both Indigenous and Irish-Canadian heritage, she is a filmmaker who often works with the ideas of identity, perspective and the way we are shaped by our environments in both documentary and narrative genres.
