Medicine Walk

Frank Starlight is a young First Nations man who is called to attend to the last days of his alcoholic father, Eldon. Eldon asks his son to take him into the mountains, so he may be buried in the traditional Ojibway manner. Together they make a journey into BC's interior, but it is also a journey into each of the characters' pasts.
