In this film, directed by Shirley Cheechoo, Adam Beach plays Johnny Tootall, a soldier discharged from the Bosnian War. He returns home, haunted by a dark secret- the murder of a young boy. He also carries other demons, including the death of his father, his departure from destiny as Chief of his Band, and leaving the love of his life.
Upon his return, Johnny finds a new war. His estranged brother is leading a revolt to save their sacred land. Johnny faces a new dilemma- does he fight to save his people, or does he save himself? His journey will guide him to realizing that they are the same. In an instant, his world changes; and in death, his brother guides him on a spirit walk to meet his destiny as leader of his people.
