Mesnak

Synopsis

Dave, an urban aboriginal in his early twenties, is a Montreal actor. His adoption at the age of 3 has erased all memory of his Native culture. When he receives his first-ever contact with his biological mother through a photo in the mail, Dave leaves for Kinogamish, the reserve where he was born. And where his biological mother, Gertrude, still lives. The reunion does not unfold as expected and Dave becomes disoriented, confronted with a world that seems hostile and foreign. Although alienated from his Native culture, can Dave find a home there? Like Hamlet, the Shakespearean hero who he is working on in theatre class, Dave starts to experience an identity crisis. His unplanned return to this desolate community causes upheavals and chain reactions, while dredging up a painful past scarred by secrets and lies.
