This thought-provoking suspense thriller explores and highlights the impact of the 'culture-killing' effects of the typical Native American experience in boarding schools in the 1900s and other inter-social relationships between the Native American people and the dominant European-based American culture.
This controversial and scandalous subject is depicted through one woman's revelations of a Catholic priest's sinister plot to silence her mother from speaking the truth about the atrocities that took place at her Native American boarding school. The lasting and disastrous impact of the cultural genocide and loss of identity that occurred at these institutions across the United States and Canada are explicitly exposed, through this haunting and suspenseful tale.
