Storyline

Julie, a lonely fourteen year old girl, moves to Manzanita, an Oregon seaside town, from Los Angeles after her writer father, Robert, loses his job. Her family, including mother Kathryn and older sister Susan, has trouble adjusting to life in a small town. Julie parents struggle with her father's unemployment and her sister, Susan, finds solace in a summer fling with Tom, a not-to-bright local logger. The story opens with a 16th century Spanish sailors landing their launch on the beach of Manzanita. They carry a treasure chest up Neahkahnie Mountain, leading a manacled black slave. The treasure is buried and the slave killed and laid on top of the ground to "guard" the treasure and frighten the Indians away. Back in present day, Julie has a dramatic encounter with a large Roosevelt Elk on the beach. Its hooves uncover an old Spanish gold coin in the sand. The Elk becomes Julie's silent, watchful guide and protector as she becomes fascinated by the legend of the Tillamook Treasure and ... Written by Richard Doyon

Magical, mystical entertainment
3 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this at the film festival in Toronto and just recently bought the DVD. I loved it on the big screen and love it just as much on the small screen. The lead actress was enchanting. Loved Floyd Red Crow Westerman. Saw a tribute to him recently at the Native American Music Awards where the flute player in this movie, Jan Michael Looking Wolf won best artist of the year. Very cool. The puppets added another layer to the film They were done by Philip Huber who I think did the puppets in Being John Malkovich. Some great talent for a small indie film.

Mostly the film touched me because of the respectful way it treated native American myth and also because it had a young girl lead who was strong and a good role model for my 3 young daughters. I watched it with my parents, daughters, nieces and nephews and it played well to all age groups.

Well done and beautifully told story.
