In this sensitive tale, adult Jake looks back on his childhood in Niagara Falls, Canada, in the 1980s. As a 12-year old he is quite the odd man out, just like his half-native boyfriend Billy and sister Dove. Jake has an uncle who runs a shop in occult paraphernalia. Every Saturday uncle Cal takes them to special places and tells them ghost stories. Unknowingly Cal tries to banish his own spirits with them. Brilliant coming-of-age story.
