'As far away from Hollywood as you can get': Cape Breton film makes big debut at TIFF
The Toronto International Film Festival kicks off next month. Hollywood blockbusters will make their big splash, but so will many smaller Canadian features.
The story is inspired by an actual couple in Cape Breton and the issue of opiate addiction on the island.
It stars non-professional actors and is rooted in the community, which was important to director Ashley McKenzie.
Candy spoke to Ashley and Andrew Gillis, who stars in the film.
