Set in the 19th century on the island of Haida Gwaii, a man is forced to retreat into the wilderness after an accident. He then becomes gaagiixiid/gaagiid or a wildman. The title is rooted in the Haida saying "The world is as sharp as the edge of a knife; as you go along, you have to be careful or you will fall off one side or the other."
