Hustling with her uncle Burner, she sells enough dope to pay Popper her "truancy tax", keeping her out of St. D's.

"A bi-racial menage a trois drenched in surrealist urban skank. Maytag, a reservation displaced Mi'gMaq, latches onto the only other Indian within light years of the city only to have her snatched away by his drug dealer and friend. Sadistically lovesick and drug addled, Maytag launches an insecticide on the cockroaches that have colonized his trailer convinced that they helped steal his fiance. Heart broken and thoroughly crushed, he turns to his only friend for solace, his chainsaw. A demented allegory on miscegenation, the plight of modern native Canadians and their affinity for self-destruction."--IMDb, Aug. 5, 2016
