As a young boy, filmmaker Lorne Olson was told that Indigenous people were like apples - red on the outside, white on the inside. Ironically, it was that notion that set him off on a long journey to find out who he was. Throughout his life, he has identified himself as Métis, half-breed, Oji-Cree, Indian, Native, Aboriginal, and so on. He never felt entirely comfortable with any of these names - each one a reflection of the changing dialogue of the times. Apples and Indians is a whimsical and profound 5-minute ride that sees Lorne speeding through decades in search of his true identity.
