Through stand-up comedy, original songs, storytelling, and brilliant multi-character vignettes, Métis Mutt recounts the story of Sheldon Elter’s coming of age under extremely difficult family and cultural circumstances. The child of a violently alcoholic father, Sheldon struggles to come to grips with his feelings about being the eldest child in an abusive household. Experiencing bigotry from both sides of the racial fence, he attempts to understand both what drives him psychologically and what is important to him culturally. Leave your preconceptions at the door and watch Elter pull himself up by his bootstraps and carve out a creative life for himself.
