An exploration of the reality of returning home on the reserve to face family, community and death. We follow Quilla and her sister June as they return to bury their mentally ill mother. They were abandoned by their mother sixteen years ago and haven't returned home for over seven years. From medications to love, addiction revels in the characters lives, edifying their own personal rituals, pain, lust and disappointment. All this leads them through ceremony. It is family that helps Quilla and June to find their true calling in life.Written by
