Agokwe explores unrequited love between teenage boys from neighboring reserves. Mike is a hockey player and Jake is a traditional dancer. The boys notice each other at the Kenora Shoppers Mall and ultimately connect through a mutual love of movement while Mike is skating and Jake is dancing "like grass blowing in the wind." They meet briefly at a post hockey-tournament party where they bashfully confess their desire for each other. However - youth, distance and isolation strive to pull the threads apart when tragedy intervenes. AGOKWE speaks to bullying, homophobia, unrequited love, social isolation and the lost traditions of the Anishnaabe.
