It's title derived from the original Mohawk word for "Toronto," director Shane Belcourt's soul-searching drama tells the tale of two Aboriginal thirty-somethings who come face to face on a quest to stake a claim on their urban aboriginal identities. Ray Morin is a Métis writer who has recently arrive in Toronto to a new television series he's selling as "Indian Jones." It seems that Ray is on the verge of his big break, if he could only put aside his growing resentment of television executives who seem more interested in procuring that elusive Aboriginal funding than in the actual show, perhaps he could finally bring his creative vision to the small screen for all to see. Ray is determined to maintain his integrity, but his non-Aboriginal wife just wants him to accept the job and cash the paycheck. Meanwhile, Anishnabe artist Jolene Peltier is also in Toronto on a creative mission. Peltier is conducting numerous interviews with prominent Aboriginals in order to paint a series of portraits. She has always felt as if she should walk a more spiritual path in life, and her inner-feelings are confirmed after she receives an eagle feather and sweetgrass from Elder Max. But Peltier's husband couldn't seemingly care less about his wife's spiritual transformation, a fact that leads the emotionally starved artists to suspect that her marriage may be in danger of dissolving.
