In the bible, there is a plot hole. Mary and Joseph accidentally leave a 13 year old Jesus in Jerusalem after passover, when they find him he is teaching the Pharisees and Sadducees in the Temple. The next time we see Jesus, he is 30 years old wandering around the desert, getting baptized by John the Baptist. In this deeply researched, totally irreverent comedy, we see teenaged Jesus, wondering why he doesn’t fit in. Mary and Joseph finally come clean and tell him that Joseph isn’t his real father.

Close to four thousand Indigenous men and women served in the Canadian Forces during the Great War, an extraordinary number given the limited civil rights accorded to them at the time. Canadian federal policy offered postwar benefits to Indigenous veterans, but many had given up their status in order to enlist and were denied these benefits upon their return to Canada. By the end of the war, several Indigenous soldiers had achieved near legendary status as scouts, trench-raiders, and snipers, drawing on their pre-wartime experience in hunting and wilderness survival.
