Young lovers on intertwined paths connect across identities in Toronto
Led by star and co-writer Devery Jacobs (RESERVATION DOGS), THIS PLACE explores the stories of two women in Toronto: Kawenniióhstha, a half-Iranian, half-Mohawk poet searching for her estranged father, and Malai, a Tamil graduate student grappling with her own father’s alcoholism.
Connected by complicated feelings towards their heritage and families, a palpable bond blooms between the women in director V. T. Nayani’s artful debut. What results is an intricately crafted narrative that warmly bridges the gaps between their two worlds and reconciles the love they feel for each other.
