Film Description:
"A young Aboriginal girl's hopes and dreams are re-negotiated within the walls and tunnels of the institution of education. Story based on Tashina Monias (Garden Hill, MB). Using alcohol and drugs as the catalyst for a community-wide change of consciousness, a group of students at southeast collegiate in Winnipeg, MB have broken ground on the massive issue of alcohol and drug abuse in Aboriginal communities through a program called The Challenge. What started as a mere effort to curb the drinking and drugging habits of the students, by challenging them to complete abstinence, has since brought forth momentous shifts in consciousness and awareness. This trilogy (WARCHILD, TASHINA, and KWONI) celebrates three youth that have successfully endured the shift toward a life of wellness."
