Congratulations to the whole team behind RHYMES FOR YOUNG GHOULS!

RHYMES FOR YOUNG GHOULS is set in 1976 and tells the story of 15-year-old Aila, weed princess of Red Crow reserve. By government decree, every Indian child under the age of 18 must attend residential school. In the kingdom of the crow, that means imprisonment at St. Dymphna's and being at the mercy of “Popper”, the sadistic Indian agent who runs the school. Hustling with her uncle Burner, Aila sells enough dope to pay Popper her “truancy tax”, keeping her out of St. D's residential school. But when Aila's drug money is stolen and her father Joseph returns from prison, the precarious balance of her world is destroyed. Her only two options are to run or fight . . . and Mi'gMaq don't run.
