Abstract
"A drama depicting a young native man caught between the fast-paced world of the city streets and his culture and family. Returning home to a rural Indian reserve after some time in prison and on the streets, Mike is persuaded by his wife to attend an AIDS information workshop. Realizing the seriousness of his past high-risk behaviour, Mike decides to go for an AIDS test. With the support of his grandfather, a nurse, and his wife Doreen, Mike begins to understand the need for a change in his life. We learn that there is more to AIDS prevention than the correct use of condoms: individuals must examine their own lifestyles and sexual practices and determine what changes might be necessary to ensure good health in their lives."
