Storyline

The message of the film's love story is a reflection for the Native women lost and for other's that have lost someone too. The film offers a glimpse in to an Indigenous epidemic that has claimed the lives of thousands of women and leaving surviving families, needs global awareness. Local news feeds and broadcasts from reservations here in the U.S. to the reserves in Canada are filled with unbelievable first hand accounts of Indigenous women who are missing and never found. Both governments almost never and rarely ever mention this growing issue. Written by Jhane Myers
