Winner—Betty Youson Award for Best Canadian Short Documentary

This short film is part of World Showcase Shorts Program 4.

A Cree filmmaker and her white partner document their pregnancy and journey to parenthood. From the search for an Indigenous donor and midwife to their concerns about raising a child as an interracial queer couple, the joy of having a child together gives them the courage to overcome any obstacle.
