After receiving a grant to devise a politically correct Thanksgiving play for children featuring a Native American voice, Logan begins work with history teacher Caden, performance artist Jaxton, and a Native American actress from LA. Or so she thinks. Through a collaborative process, the artists attempt to balance the true history of the holiday with their own privileges to deliver the Thanksgiving play to end all other Thanksgiving plays- perhaps literally. This clever satirical comedy challenges the values of “woke” culture and the complexities of representation.
