Twelve-year-old Beans is on the edge: torn between innocent childhood and reckless adolescence; forced to grow up fast and become the tough Mohawk warrior she needs to be during the Oka Crisis, the turbulent Indigenous uprising that tore Quebec and Canada apart for 78 tense days in the summer of 1990.

"It’s no surprise that a filmmaker’s best work is often their most personal. The coming-of-age film, an over-saturated genre with more misfires than successes, works best when the creator not only draws from their own experiences, but leaves it all on the screen." - Jude Dry, Indie Wire
