Shana is a Canadian First Nations girl who is a gifted violinist. But she has problems no young person should have to face: her mother has died, and her father is struggling with his own demons. Only Shana's new teacher seems to care about her, and at first, Shana pushes her away. But she meets another, more mystical being to accompany her on her journey: a wild wolf who helps her reconnect with her ancestors, make peace with her circumstances, and use her talents to express her passions.
Filming with a cast made up of People of the Creeks, the Lower Nicola Indian Band, near Merritt, British Columbia, the Swiss director spent seven months making this moving, magical and authentically intercultural motion picture.
Notes for parents: This uplifting film includes a few coarse words and a frank depiction of an alcoholic but loving parent.
