This intimate and personal film tells the story of Nakuset, a survivor of the Sixties Scoop who was adopted into an affluent Jewish family in Montreal.

Told through personal archives and stitched together with kinetic editing, Nakuset guides us through her life and introduces us to her abuse, confusion and struggles to reclaim her identity.

A story of hope and resilience, this short documentary chronicles how Nakuset, with the help of her Bubby (her Jewish grandmother), transformed her life and became a powerful advocate for her people.
