With great sensitivity, this short film based on a true story speaks to the resilience that comes through dance. Directed by Taylor, a woman of Blackfoot and Sioux origin, the film reminds us that this art form is not just about folklore; it can be a way to overcome adversity, connect with our spirituality, and find inner peace. Now a mother, Taylor is determined to preserve her experience and to protect the traditions that have shaped her, such as powwows and sewing. An intimate story of personal transformation and the path to healing.
