Dorothy Christian is a member of the Okanagan and Secwepemc Nations of the British Columbia Interior. She combines drama, documentary and poetic prose in "a spiritual land claim" to express the violence of colonization in a very artful way. Portraying the transformation of one woman through her spiritual journey as she returns to her traditional homelands, the director uses traditional and contemporary Indigenous songs and haunting instrumentation to travel with the "spirit" on its healing journey back to its ancestral homelands.
