To save her daughter, Waseese, from this fate, Niska has been hiding them in the woods, living a reclusive life dominated by fear of discovery. When the pair are forced into the remnants of the city, Waseese is captured along with several others. Niska finds herself among the 'Night Raiders', a group of indigenous rebels who plan to free their children.
This is Goulet's debut feature. She has made a captivating and immersive film that astutely uses the sci-fi genre to criticise the treatment of First Nations people.
