Family is the underlying thread in this collection of short films. From reflections of Bill Reid’s granddaughter to the closing of a family restaurant in Campbell River, as well as issues of gender identity, caregiving and immigration in the time of COVID-19, these five stories explore plural meanings of home, family and legacy.

After nearly 40 years, the family-run Koto Japanese Restaurant in Campbell River is closing down. Run by the Maeda family, the Koto is known for being one of the first authentic Japanese restaurants in the “Salmon Capital of the World.” Set during its final business days, Joella Cabalu’s film is a meditation on graceful goodbyes and the legacy of investing care and attention in relationships through sushi.
