Two Indians Talking story line

Two Indians Talking is a comedic drama about the conflicting opinions of two First Nations men as they prepare to set up a roadblock. Each man wants fiercely to do the right thing, but struggles with the question, “When you do something for the right reasons, does that make it the right thing to do?”

ADAM (Justin Rain) is a university-educated Native of the Seventh Generation, raised to believe that knowledge is the Indian’s best tool for survival. NATHAN (Nathaniel Arcand) is a high school dropout whose dreams have been consistently crushed in his endurance of the past 20 years.

On the eve of their nation’s roadblock, the cousins prepare for the impending battle in an empty community centre that they paint with heartfelt conversation and humorous debate about life, culture, identity, women, literature, dreams, politics, education, poverty, and about hope for the future — if any.
