Rhymes for Young Ghouls is a 2013 Canadian drama, and the feature film debut of writer-director Jeff Barnaby. It is set in 1976 on an Indian reserve in the context of the residential school system. Although it tells the fictional story of a teenager named Aila and her plot for revenge, it is based on the history of abuse of the First Nations people by government agents, including a large number of reported cases of the mental and physical abuse of residential school children. Designing Rhymes was exceptionally rewarding in terms of character driven visuals and culturally accurate sets.
