Walking Alone is an edgy, searing portrait of an ex-gang member trying to make peace with his past.

When Shawn Bernard started a rap group, he never dreamed that it would turn into a gang. But before long, the rap group was overshadowed by an increasingly notorious Indigenous gang, which eventually reached a national scale.

In the wake of the rap group's demise, Shawn became a renowned drug dealer, living a high risk lifestyle that would ultimately lead to tragedy.

In Walking Alone, Shawn raps about the various struggles of his life, the choices he's made and their consequences, while poignantly recounting the loss of his sister. He shares his positive message by raising awareness of the harsh realities of gang life among youth.

Filmmaker Gerald Auger has made an impressive debut - one wrought with emotion and hope.
