Summary note:
For over sixty years, Cecile St. Amant has been keeping a deep secret - she is Métis. Cecile's granddaughter, Janelle sets out to understand her Mémére's denial and playfully plots her own mission to open her Mémére's eyes to the richness of their heritage. As the two faceoff in a battle of the wills, Janelle soon realizes that her Mémére will not be easily convinced that being Métis is something to be proud of.In this heart-warming and extraordinary journey, Janelle's mischievous and persistent prodding of her grandmother reveals a generation's legacy of shame and the profound courage of the human spirit to overcome it.Please Note: The (mis)use of accents in the word 'Mémére' is intentional by the filmmaker.
