In 2027 an Apocalyptic lockdown in Mohkinstsis (Calgary) holds a grade 7 classroom captive during school hours. The students anxiously await their fate, not sure what is going on in the outside world, and Josh, a Blackfoot student, comes to grips with his identity and the true history of the land and the universe. When the trickster comes barreling in unexpectedly, Josh must face a lesson in colonial disorder and his own past.
