Description

Prolific filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin documents the story of a young boy forced to live in hospital, while federal and provincial governments argued over which was responsible for his care. It’s a battle for the right of Indigenous children to receive the same standard of care as the rest of Canada.  (World premiere, TIFF19; Best Cdn doc, VIFF19)

“An eye-opener of what it takes to make a difference in this country.” – Peter Howell, Toronto Star
