The documentary film highlights the idea of identity and empowerment in Native American communities. As a result of the Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women epidemic, tribal communities fight against victimization with a call to action and self preservation.
The story focuses on the Nez Perce Tribe in Idaho. The film introduces the topic of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. From there, it transitions to the response of the tribal community posing the question; “how do you raise strong, confident girls in a world that doesn’t always respect their place in society?” Through the use of interviews and collected footage, the film strives to answer: where does empowerment of the Individual lie in culture and traditional customs?
