An evocative experimental film about transformation from women’s grief rooted in colonial trauma, we find two Métis women who, through trust and sisterhood, support one another on their path to transcendence and healing.


Amy Malbeuf (Métis) is a visual artist who has exhibited her work nationally and internationally. In 2016 she was selected as one of six Indigenous artists to create a permanent public artwork for the upcoming Indigenous Art Park in Edmonton. Through utilizing mediums such as caribou hair tufting, beadwork, installation, performance and video, Malbeuf explores notions of place, language and ecology.
