RITE OF THE SHAMAN - Official Trailer
Kai is a mute high school student who is taking care of his fatally ill mother. He finds solace in botany and nature, as well as memories of his late grandfather, who was a shaman and owl trainer. While trying to grieve and cope with loss, Kai struggles to navigate the pressures of high school, as well as the pressures of caring for his mother. He spirals into depression and pushes away everyone that he loves, especially after discovering how bad his mother's cancer really is. Ultimately Kai is faced with a decision. Will he continue to descend down the dark path he is heading toward, and will he continue to spread negativity and hate? Or will he become the healer and beacon of light that he was truly meant to be? Rite of the Shaman is about overcoming life's everyday challenges, confronting the shadow self to find healing, and understanding how our actions, as minuscule as they may seem, ultimately impact other's lives.
