    • Synopsis
    • “This risky, rewarding drama blends emotional naturalism with a formal style in the story of its three titular characters — a young Jamaican-Canadian mother with sickle-cell anemia, an ex-boxer looking for a human connection and a 12-year-old boy.” Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail

      “A stupendous soundtrack, telling images, sensitive performances and an honest emotional screenplay.” Sophie Godin, Festival du Nouveau Cinema

      “Nurse.Fighter.Boy is a rich exploration of the connections between the healer, the warrior and the child of its title.”Jesse Wente, TIFF
