Adapted from Naomi Fontaine's acclaimed novel, KUESSIPAN is Myriam Verreault's first narrative feature. In a Quebec Innu community, teenage girls Mikuan and Shaniss struggle to maintain their close friendship when they clash over their diverging ambitions. When Mikuan falls in love with a white boy and starts to consider a life beyond their tiny reservation, her bond with Shaniss and her family is put to the test. Kuessipan means "your turn" in the Innu language, a title chosen to mark the notion that it is the Innu people's turn to tell their story.
