Rustic Oracle tells the story of Ivy, an eight-year-old girl who attempts to understand what happened to her big sister Heather, who vanished from their small Mohawk community. With little help from the authorities and very few clues, Ivy and her mother Susan desperately take matters into their own hands and embark on a painful journey to find the missing teen.
