Film: Indian residential schools, reckoning, and healing

An investigation of unmarked graves at an Indian residential school ignites a reckoning above ground in the lives of survivors and their descendants, including the film's co-director whose father was born and nearly buried at the school. Following these interweaving storylines towards the impending excavation, SUGARCANE traces a complex quest for answers, reckoning, and justice, rooted in a deep yearning for healing.
