Twitter Capsule: Noble intents, rare focus, and solid production values lose out to stiff writing and editing, erratic hold on character.

VOR:   Gay First Nations characters are, for sure, fairly new to the screen, but Fire Song commits a lot of the errors that make its story feel unready rather than urgent.
