The Way You Carry On tells the heartfelt story of Kelly and Nic, two estranged sisters in their mid-thirties, who are women we don’t often get to see. Nic is queer, polyamorous and about to have her first child in a blended family of four co-parents. Kelly has just left her nuclear family – her husband and two young children – as a way of affirming her selfhood and her truth. Sitting in Nic’s backyard in East Van, on unceded Musqueam territory, we witness two women on the brink of transformation as they confront the forces in their lives that both shaped and alienated them.
