In a rural east-coast trailer park, Link lives with his toxic father and younger half-brother Travis. When Link discovers his Mi'kmaw mother could still be alive, it lights a flame and they make a run for a better life. On the road they meet Pasmay, a pow wow dancer drawn to Link. As the boys journey across Mi’kma’ki, Link finds community, identity and love in the land where he belongs.

WILDHOOD is the Two-Spirit odyssey from writer/director/producer Bretten Hannam, and one of the first film productions in Nova Scotia to start up post-COVID lockdown.
