One of Canada's greatest artists, Daphne Odjig, is a Potowatomi from Manitoulin Island. Her work, based on Indigenous traditions and way of life, spans over four decades. This epic goes beyond her paintings and drawings and looks at the forces that molded her spirit and her keen interest in art. Duke Redbird calls her a "national treasure" for her unique style and her often spectacular painting, much of which is shown in this film. Her work reflects a wide range of topics such as spirituality, tradition, education, politics and humour. This heartwarming story of her life and her art will appeal to her many admirers around the world and garner new enthusiasts for her work.
