“Making this film was a very personal endeavor for me. My grandparents come from a long line of Choctaw ancestry, that walked the sorrowful Trail of Tears as they relocated to Oklahoma. The film was inspired by a story my grandmother used to tell me growing up. I wanted to share this story about my ancestors that gave them the beauty and mystery that I love to find in cinema.

The film digs into a realm of mysticism and its unique connection with nature and the cosmos. Its strong perspective creates an otherworldly quality that shifts the ordinary. It presents a story that honors Native American tradition/wisdom with optimism and mystery. This is a film for indigenous people, but also for others to see and learn a new side of American Indian history that is not riddled with pain, violence or tragedy. This is a story about overcoming fear with courage. A story about exiting the youth to find power within the Beyond to start the next chapter of life.”
