Set and shot in Treaty 1 territory in Vermette’s native Manitoba, the film’s narrative centres on a long-missing young woman’s unexpected return to her indigenous Métis community. Shot over the course of 14 months, incorporating scripted and improvised elements, Ste. Anne is as much a fragmentary portrait of the seasons as it is about the people whose lives are dictated in part by nature’s flow.

Of the film, Director Rhayne Vermette has said: "Ste. Anne was a project placed at the centre of a dense cosmology of effects which includes family histories and myths, disconnected visions, a narrative influence of my favourite film, improvisations on the land with non-actors, and a figurative contemplation on the Métis Nation. Reflecting on the stories we assert onto land, a cinematic collage of circular narratives explores themes of surveying, industrial methodologies, the divine, and physical manifestations of space."
