Today. Northern Quebec at the beginning of winter. Mani, a law master’s student, returns to her remote Indigenous reserve and realizes that many outdated paternalistic laws are still in force. Resolved to reintegrate into the community, she gets involved in the debate around a referendum on allowing the free sale of alcohol on the reserve. This is catastrophic for Laura, a 45-year-old bootlegger, who has been smuggling illegal alcohol onto the reserve for years. When painful past resurfaces, opposing forces quickly divide the community into two clans who must come face to face to determine the best path to independence. “An excellent film with a lot of sensitivity and humanity.” - LE MATIN DU NORD Classification: Unclassified 15+ Duration: 80 mins Tickets: $14 (Transaction fee may apply)
