Aiden Crawford, a Two-Spirit artist and historian in Boise, Idaho, struggles to preserve and revive his heritage in a race against time. Two-Spirit is a cultural term describing the fluidity of gender identity and sexuality with respect to traditional tribal roles across the First Nations. Aiden’s story represents the intergenerational struggle to learn, educate, and pass down the wisdom of his elders. This moving film helps raise awareness of non-binary understandings of gender to advance the full equality of LGBTQ people everywhere.
