Recently nominated for an incredible 15 Canadian Screen Awards, including Best Lead Actor and Actress (Drama) as well as four Supporting Actor nominations, this supernatural drama is based on the bestselling trilogy of novels by Eden Robinson. Trickster tells the story of Jared (Joel Oulette, Parallel Minds), an Indigenous teen struggling to keep his dysfunctional family above water. Jared holds down an after-school job and cooks ecstasy on the side to support his separated parents - partying mum Maggie (Crystal Lightening, The Red Man's View), who self-medicates an undiagnosed mental illness, and unemployable dad Phil (Craig Lauzon, Murdoch Mysteries), who has a painkiller addiction and a new girlfriend. But when Jared starts seeing strange things - talking ravens, doppelgängers, skin monsters - his already chaotic life is turned upside down.
