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

Did You Know?


Indian flute music is performed by Jan Michael Looking Wolf Reibach, a Kalapuya Native from the Grand Ronde Tribe of central Oregon. Jan also appears with his flute in a scene with Suzanne Marie Doyon and Floyd Red Crow Westerman. When producer Richard Doyon first heard Jan's music he was moved and was overjoyed when Jan offered his music for the movie. Hearing that Jan's uncle had recently passed on and that Jan had been very close to his uncle, Richard asked if Floyd Red Crow Westerman's character, originally called Great Elk, could be renamed in honor of Jan's uncle. Jan said he was honored, as was the tribe, and so the character's name was changed to Standing Elk. See more »

A family adventure, loved it!
26 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent, I saw it with my kids and we were part of every minute of this fast-pace adventure. Julie is a hero, not only for finding the treasure against all odds, yet also for fixing all the family troubles after all. Great acting in all the supporting parts as well. I'm thankful that there are still movies out there that can make you feel good and promote family values. An interesting combination of independent film making and "money on screen", the cave showdown is just phenomenal! A perfect Holiday Movie for the upcoming season. Take your kids and see it, I checked the website, it seems the movie is traveling the festival cycle quite a bit these days. Hope the DVD is out soon, too. RJ
