Synopsis

Summary

Told in the voice of a boy and his father, this story explores the emotional toll of a child being taken from their family and community to attend residential school. While the boy’s internal monologue expresses his fear, confusion, and loss, the father’s monologue conveys his own sadness, fears, and hopes for the future of his child. Upon his return to his community, the boy and his father must start the long process of reconnection.
