Commendation of the Ecumenical Jury, Kyiv 2020 (International Competition of Full-Length Feature Films)

The first narrative film by Myriam Verreault, tells the story of Mikuan and Shaniss, two young Innu women in Uashat-Maliotenam, whose lifelong friendship is put to the test by several turns of fate. A story about friendship, courage, family background and carving your own path out of the solid rock that life can be. Set in a very specific community but with a universal appeal, this feature film sparks hope despite its dramatic events.
