Josiah Wilson was adopted as a baby in Haiti and raised in an Indigenous family in Calgary, Canada. Years later, when Josiah is racially profiled at an Indigenous basketball tournament and refused the right to play a sport he deeply loves, his experience makes the news. In the aftermath of this hurtful rejection, Josiah is left to examine his identity, his shaken sense of belonging and the complex relationships he has with this family and community. With the unwavering support of his loved ones, Josiah embarks on the difficult path of healing from his past and finding his footing in the world.

With deep compassion for Josiah's journey, Yasmine Mathurin's honest portrayal of complicated family dynamics boldly asks the audience to create space for non-linear paths to self-acceptance, while revealing the empowering experience of being accepted and loved by your community.
