Inspired by true life events, Agokwe is a tale of unrequited love between teenage boys from neighboring reserves. They meet up at a post hockey-tournament party where they bashfully confess their desire for each other. However youth, distance and isolation strive to pull the threads apart when tragedy intervenes. (
