Synopsis: 

TUMIT explores the cycles that can pass from generation to generation.  Based in an apartment in the city, Sarah, the protagonist, discovers she is pregnant and has to move out of the place she once shared with her husband, David.  As she packs, Sarah disjointedly journeys through her life  revisiting the familial relationships and places that brought her to where she is now.  She searches for the answer needing to know, "can cycles ever really be broken?"  Here she re-visits her greatest joys and faces her greatest pains that will ultimately determine her decision to be mother or not.
TUMIT, meaning "tracks" in Inuktitut, is a northern Indigenous play that weaves contemporary and traditional storytelling together.
