Based on a poem by Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory, Adolescence is the story of a young Inuit woman who reflects on the historical trauma experienced by Inuit living in Canada through a conversation with her beloved grandmother. Against the backdrop of the Arctic sea ice, this fictional story connects the impact of colonization to the ongoing mental health crisis in Nunavut, while maintaining hope for the future.
