Link is doing his best to protect his younger brother Travis from their father’s violent rages. But one night he discovers a dark family secret and realizes that he must leave his father, who symbolizes the violent cultural evisceration of European colonization. Yet Link cannot accept who he really is – even hearing his native language triggers feelings of aggression and resentment.
Pasmay, a young vagabond he meets on his journey, is sympathetic to Link and his younger brother’s situation and decides to put his own life on hold in order to help Link to find his way.
Wildhood” is director Bretten Hannam’s second film. This is a road trip film following a young Native-Canadian man on his journey of self-discovery and unveiling a heritage he knew nothing about. It is also a delicate, sensitive and sexy love story of a couple Two-Spirit young adults.
