CANADA | 78 minutes | 2016

Two twenty-something drug addicts attempt to eke out a semblance of dignity in the face of overwhelming indifference. Lining up for their daily dose of methadone, mowing lawns for meagre earnings, dishing up soft-serve at an ice cream parlour, Blaise and Nessa struggle to go straight. Except that in this hick town, you could die on the street and nobody would lift a finger to help you… The debut feature from young Cape Bretoner McKenzie serves up hard truths through a tale tinged with lassitude.
