Synopsis

Broken Records is a 90’s tale about an eventful night for a dysfunctional indigenous family. Sophia is a hopeful teenage girl consumed by mainstream pop culture. The movies she watches don’t always match her own personal life but she chooses to view the world through rose-pedalled glasses. She lives on the reserve with her assertive mother, eccentric father and older cynical brother. Their relationship is put to the test when the father decides to celebrate a pool-tournament victory by throwing a house party.
