Josiah Wilson was adopted as a baby in Haiti and raised in an Indigenous family in Calgary, Canada. Years later, when Josiah is racially profiled at an Indigenous basketball tournament and refused the right to play a sport he deeply loves, his experience makes the news. In the aftermath of this hurtful rejection, Josiah is left to examine his identity, his shaken sense of belonging and the complex relationships he has with this family and community. With the unwavering support of his loved ones, Josiah embarks on the difficult path of healing from his past and finding his footing in the world. With deep compassion for Josiah’s journey, this honest portrayal of complicated family dynamics boldly asks us to create space for non-linear paths to self-acceptance, while revealing the empowering experience of being accepted and loved by your community.

Josiah Wilson a été adopté alors qu’il était bébé en Haïti et a grandi au sein d’une famille autochtone à Calgary. Des années plus tard, lorsqu’il est victime de profilage racial lors d’un tournoi de basketball autochtone et qu’on lui refuse le droit de pratiquer le sport qu’il aime, son histoire attire l’attention des médias. À la suite de ce douloureux rejet, Josiah est amené à remettre en question son identité, son sentiment d’appartenance et ses relations complexes avec cette famille et la communauté. Avec l’appui indéfectible de ses proches, il se lance sur la voie de la guérison et cherche à trouver son équilibre et sa place dans le monde.
