Young Triffie, directed by Mary Walsh, is a dark comedy written by Ray Guy, a Newfoundland essayist, based on his own play entitled Young Triffie's Been Made Away With (1985).

It was produced by Denise Robert and Daniel Louis and featured a cast including Andrea Martin, Jonny Harris, Colin Mochrie, Susan Kent and Remy Girard, with lead actor Fred Ewanuick of Corner Gas fame.

Set in 1947, before Newfoundland joined Confederation, the film is about a clumsy and unpopular Newfoundland Ranger (Alan Hepditch, played by Fred Ewanuick) who is sent to investigate a case of sexually assaulted and mutilated sheep in fictional outport Swyer's Harbour.
