Description

As the pain and loss of James’s residential school experiences follow him into adulthood, his life spirals out of control. Haunted by guilt, he is unable to maintain a relationship with Lauren and their son Edwin. Edwin, mired in his own pain, tries to navigate past the desolation of his fatherless childhood. As James tries to heal himself he begins to realize that, somehow, he may save his son’s life – as well as his own. When father and son finally meet, can they heal their shattered relationship, and themselves, or will it be too late?
