Grace, an Indigenous woman adopted by a white family, is asked by her birth sister to return to the reserve for their mother’s funeral. Afraid of opening old wounds, Grace must find a place where the culture of her past can feed the truth of her present. She struggles to connect her two lives in this heartwarming and hilarious story about coming home.
