This short documentary follows a day in the life of Vic/Nike and Brynn - two non-binary, queer, trans folk who live near the town of Springfield, in rural Nova Scotia, Canada. In 2021, they bought twelve acres of field and forest to build a farm and collective housing for members of the community historically excluded from rural spaces, including but not limited to BIPOC, 2SLGBTQIA+ and disabled folks. They imagine it to become a physical manifestation of the concept of commoning, where they wish “to see the redistribution of wealth and resources into the collective stewardship of community”. The film is a glimpse into the making of the first collective house, assisted by community members, as well as a tour of the forested land that they plan to build on and share in the future.
