"This film follows the children and grandchildren of former Kamloops Indian Residential School students as they work to regenerate traditional knowledge in their current contexts. It explores the tensions encountered as activists, educators, a poet and a rodeo family each work to find an uncompromising balance between ensuring culture and language live on while deploying western literacies to accomplish their goals."
