During the one of the most tumultuous years in American history, Canaan tells the coming-of-age story of a teenager and his community, caught between love, activism, and spirituality. In 1968, generations collide as Washington, D.C. neighbors must decide where there loyalties lie when the Civil Rights Movement takes a turn.
