Synopsis

What does it mean to be Indigenous in today's world? The film heads out to the North Coast of Québec to meet residents of Pessamit, an Innu community formerly named Betsiamites. In a face to face with the camera, their voice, direct and unexpected, is heard. 13 members of the community discuss their daily lives, identities, pains, and hopes. Betsiamites draws a portrait from this voice and forges links between our cultures.
