Good Grief

REBECCA, an Indigenous woman arrives at her childhood family home after receiving news that her grandmother has died. She is anxious to face her family who she’s been away from for the past six years. Rebecca grew up believing she was Caucasian until her mother told her the news that she was half Indigenous. After finding and meeting her Indigenous family, she did a deep dive into her newfound family and culture, drifting away from her Caucasian family over the years.
