Program explores the relationship between Inuvialuit filmmaker Dennis Allen and his father, Victor. Unlike the elder Allen, Dennis had grown up during the tumultuous period of residential schools and the 'reform' of traditional culture and practices. The result: a loss of identity and a lifelong struggle with addiction. Once, Dennis had blamed his dad for his hardships. Today, he seeks to rebuild their relationship and his connection to their culture.
