A deal between two men threatens to unravel as tensions rise in this contemporary look at indigenous language and culture. One man comes from a lower, working class, and is at the beck and call of the other man, who lives in more privileged comfort. HUYHUY premiered at imagineNATIVE 2013, where it received an Honorable Mention for Best Indigenous Language Production.
