In a rural east-coast trailer park, Link lives with his toxic father and younger half-brother Travis. When Link discovers his Mi’kmaw mother could still be alive, they light a flame and make a run for a better life. On the road they meet Pasmay, a pow wow dancer drawn to Link. As the boys journey across Mi’kma’ki (Nova Scotia), Link finds community, identity, and love in the land where he belongs.

Wildhood is an expansion of Hannam’s earlier short film Wildfire, which was the winner of the award for Best Short Film at the Screen Nova Scotia awards in 2020. Filmed in English and Mi’kmaw, Wildhood will have its world premiere at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival. It was also selected to be the opening night film for the 2021 FIN Atlantic International Film Festival.
