“The past won’t let me go.” – Maggie

So much happens over tea, Maggie says to her daughter Gwynn. At the kitchen table, they discuss Gwynn’s shaky marriage, Maggie’s lingering nightmares and a neighbour’s annoying streak at bingo. But they talk without saying much and old family hurts simmer. When Gwynn encourages her mother to return to the site of her residential school, frustration boils over. As a journalist, Gwynn wants her mom to share her story so the world will know what happened. But how can Maggie expose her trauma to a world that turned its back on her, when she can’t even talk to her own daughter?

Developed for the 2021 Pimootayowin Creators Circle, Rosanna Deerchild’s story of healing, forgiveness and hope has been a lifetime in the making.
