What is a story? What power is in our experiences? firebear called them faith healers ...an aboriginal story... presents vignettes of oral storytelling, from the life experience of Métis author Richard Van Camp. Seven people, of different ages and race, stand over a white background to tell a story in three vignettes: The Dream, The Fight and The Faith Healers. Lines from the vignettes are passed from one storyteller to the next to form one over-arching story of a mysterious man, "The Quiet One", who haunts their dreams and their lives.

Told from the foundation of Aboriginal storytelling, firebear called them faith healers exmines the dynamics of power while questioning the forces that exists above what we can see, touch or hear. It will stimulate discussion on storytelling, filmmaking and spirituality.
