A TRANSFORMATIVE JOURNEY THROUGH REAL-LIFE MEMORIES.
It takes great imagination to survive. A young Indigenous girl growing up in Alberta navigates a world of substance abuse, aliens, and the spiritual presence of her guiding grandmothers. In her darkest moments, her superhero Kookum with magic moccasins appears to help light the way forward. With humour, forgiveness, and truth, she is able to heal from the past and transform her future.
Award-winning Cree artist Michelle Thrush (from APTN’s Blackstone, CBC’s North of 60, Arctic Air) weaves real-life memories with laughter, grace, and playfulness to explore her own inner elder. A mix of poignant recollections, beautiful humour, and intimate storytelling that will open your heart and mind while making you laugh out loud.
