Synopsis


WEB-SERIES

Two opposite Indigenous women, Daka and Abe, navigate their dreams in the big city. Daka, new to the city, attempts to make her dance dreams a reality though she finds the city not as welcoming as her small Rez. Abe, a professional musician, tries to deal with her inner demons and just wants a nice “girl” to love for once. Both women end up on a dating app where to Daka’s surprise, they match! Through this connection the women explore their identities, their hearts and love of being in an Indiqueer relationship.
