Growing up together on an Innu First Nations reserve in Quebec, Mikuan and Shaniss swore they’d always stick together. But as the girls approach adulthood, educational opportunities—and a budding romance—lead Mikuan to contemplate leaving the reserve, putting their bond to the test. Based on the novel by Naomi Fontaine, this captivating coming-of-age story explores love, friendship, and community through an Indigenous lens.
