Heather Condo was born in Maria, Quebec on October 14, 1971 and adopted by a family from Massachussetts. In 2005, she moved back to Gesgapegiag where a lot of her family resides. It was one of Heather's dreams to make a film about her husband's gift and it only came to fruition when her son Zach encouraged her to make one with Wapikoni Mobile.
