Filmed in cinéma vérité style, this feature-length doc follows a group of incarcerated men with troubled pasts as they undergo treatment based on Indigenous philosophy at the Waseskun Healing Center.

Director Steve Patry spent a full year with these men, gaining their trust and confidence.
This film explores and challenges the traditional meaning of “gender” through a global perspective. American journalist, Katie Couric tours the country and interviews many people who are involved in the “gender revolution”- individuals who are transgender, born intersex and the LGBTQ community as well as scientists, psychologists, therapists and people at all ends of the spectrum. By exploring gender as it relates to biology, sexuality and sociology there is a new framework for identity being formed.
