Wildfire is a two-spirit coming-of-age drama that follows Link (16), a rebellious Mi’kmaw teenager and his half-brother, Travis (10) as they run away from home in a desperate gamble to start a new life. Lost in their new-found freedom, they pick up PASMAY (17), a hitchhiking two-spirit fancy dancer on the powwow trail. Together they travel through backroads and untamed parts of the wild, dodging Link and Travis’ abusive father, at every turn. To connect with Link, Pasmay teaches him Mi’kmaw words and traditions – the beginning of a new relationship forming between them. As Link begins to heal the wounds he’s carried all his life and reclaim his culture, he’s forced at gun point to face his father and protect his new family.
